Dermatology Services for Pets

Your pet’s skin can be exposed to all sorts of allergens, irritants and parasites. It’s important to thoroughly check your pet’s skin regularly to ensure they’re not experiencing any skin issues. Skin issues might also be an indication of an underlying health issue. They can cause your pet discomfort, due to itchiness and soreness.

What skin issues affect pets?

There are a range of common issues that affect pets. Allergies caused by food or environmental irritants might irritate your pet’s skin. The culprit of your furry friend’s food allergies might be protein, wheat or vegetables that are part of their diet. Environmental allergens might include grass, dust mites and pollen. Parasites and infections, like a yeast infection, might also be the root cause of your pet’s skin issues.

What are the signs of an infection?

Depending on the cause of your pet’s skin condition, you might notice any of the signs below. Please contact us at 902.865.6400 If you observe these symptoms:

  • Itchiness
  • Sores or lumps
  • Dry skin
  • Rashes or redness
  • Dandruff
  • Hair loss

    How long does it take to cure my pet?

    Depending on the type of skin issues, we might use a range of treatment options to cure your pet. We might use bloodwork at our in-house laboratory to diagnose your pet’s skin issues, especially to ensure there’s no underlying issues. For example, environmental issues might be treated with a combination of shampoos, tablets and injections.
