Diseases of the skin are the most common of all problems seen by veterinarians. They can produce the most relentless, uncomfortable symptoms for your pet and for you! The skin, regardless of the diagnosis, often reacts in the same way: it turns red, hair is lost and itchiness with self-trauma frequently results. The challenge is to relieve the symptoms provide for the comfort of the pet, and the peace of mind of the owner while doing what is necessary to reach a diagnosis of the underlying cause of the problem. Underlying causes can include inhalant allergy (atopy), parasites such as mites, fleas or ticks, bacterial infection, yeast infection, fungal infection, endocrine disorder, food allergy, other immune mediated diseases and skin cancer. Our staff of veterinarians will work with you to diagnose and treat the dermatologic problems your pet is having.
