Diseases of the skin and ears are among the most common reasons pets visit their veterinarians. Dermatology problems such as these can leave your pet feeling uncomfortable and affect the quality of their life. By determining the underlying cause of recurrent problems, our doctors can provide effective treatments to keep your pup itch-free. From ear infections to chronic allergy issues, we will strive to find a solution for you and your pup.
If your dog has been scratching, scooting, or shaking more frequently, they may suffer from an itch-inducing condition. Since itching can cause your dog unnecessary discomfort and suffering, it’s essential to work with your veterinarian to determine why they’re itching and the best way to help stop the itch. We offer an injection called CYTOPOINT®, which offers 4 to 8 weeks of relief with a single in-office injection. To see if CYTOPOINT® may work for your pup, schedule an appointment with us now!
Some dogs can also suffer from food allergies! Just like humans, dogs can be allergic to any ingredient in their kibble. Most often, that allergy is caused by the main protein in the food, such as chicken or beef. We are happy to help start your dog on a food trial to determine what is causing the allergy. We offer prescription-based diets (that can be bought in-clinic or at our online pharmacy) that are specifically formulated for dogs with food allergies.
