Allergies & Dermatology

Is your pet’s itchy skin keeping you both up at night?

There are many ailments that can affect the skin of a dog or cat, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your companion to suffer and neither do we! 

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Lakewood Animal Clinic 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 first identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to look further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological conditions we routinely 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 deciding how to best treat it. Depending on the situation, we may suggest 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, it’s time to book an appointment. Contact the caring crew at Lakewood Animal Clinic right away. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
