Allergies & Dermatology

Is your pet’s itchy skin making you both feel uncomfortable?

There are many conditions that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your best pal to suffer and neither do we!

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Hambright Animal Hospital will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To get your pet feeling better, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong through a visual exam, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need so we can move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological issues we can assist with include:

  • Allergies (food and/or environmental)
  • Infections (acute or chronic)
  • Parasites
  • Dermatitis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Tumors
  • Skin cancer

Developing a Treatment Plan

Once we’ve diagnosed the problem, the next step is determining the best course of treatment. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may require a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of treatment methods.

Signs of a possible skin problem include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Scabbing or flaking of the skin
  • Hot spots
  • Shedding more than usual
  • Biting, chewing or licking at the affected area
  • Bumps or lumps on or under the skin

If you notice any of these signs in your pet, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Contact the crew at Hambright Animal Hospital. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
