Skin, Ears, and Allergies
Allergies are a common affliction for our pets and often manifest themselves in the form of a variety of symptoms. Some signs of allergies may include:
- Ear infections
- Excessive itchiness
When your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms, our veterinary team performs a variety of diagnostics to help us determine the causes of your pet’s symptoms. Some diagnostics we provide include skin scrapings, ear cytology, culture testing, and more.
Treatment Options for Allergies
Depending on the results of your pet’s allergy testing, we will begin a treatment protocol that best suits their needs. For pets that are experiencing allergies from food, we often recommend food trials to determine which foods keep your pet from having an allergic reaction. We may prescribe hypoallergenic diets to set their system at ease. We may also prescribe medical intervention, in the form of steroidal or non-steroidal medication.
