Helping You Manage Your Pet's Allergies
If your pet has dry, irritated skin or has excessive amounts of dander, they may be experiencing allergies. Like humans, pets can develop allergies from a variety of sources. They can have environmental allergies to dust, mold, pollen, trees, and grass. They can also have food allergies or be allergic to fleas. When pets are allergic to fleas, just one bite can cause skin and coat problems. Pet allergies come from a variety of sources, so we help you manage them multiple ways, including:
- We have hypoallergenic diets available to manage the two most major food allergies.
- We have anti-histamines available to treat environmental or seasonal allergies.
- We offer allergy shots to build a tolerance to unavoidable allergies.
- We offer a variety of medications for pets allergic to fleas.
- We offer treatment options for both cats and dogs affected by allergic skin disease.
- We use the most current and effective medication to treat atopic dermatitis (a chronic, inflammatory skin condition seen in dogs).

Rapid Laboratory Testing to Treat Infections
Sometimes your pet’s dermatological concerns are from bacterial or fungal infections. Oftentimes, many skin infections develop as secondary infections from allergies or irritants. As skin continues to be irritated, bacteria or yeast develop, and laboratory analysis and prescription medication are required.
Ear infections are the most common skin infections seen in cats and dogs. Once dry skin, dander, or mites irritate the ear canal, it contracts and excessive ear wax develops. This resulting pressure is extremely uncomfortable for pets. Therefore, please make an appointment immediately if they suspect your pet has an ear infection. Signs of ear infections include head shaking, red skin and dark discharge in and around the ears.
