There are a variety of ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your loved one to suffer and neither do we!
The professional allergy and dermatology services at Small Animal Hospital will help get your four-legged friend as healthy on the outside as on the inside.
To help your companion feel better, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to do more in-depth testing. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.
