Dermatology and Allergy

You notice your pet’s tags jingling non-stop, and suddenly realize that there’s been a lot more scratching lately. Animals are susceptible to hundreds of skin conditions and diseases that can leave them itchy or uncomfortable. Veterinary dermatologists see a wide array of skin, ear, fur and nail disorders, from small blemishes and allergies to severe, life-threatening problems. Sometimes a change in the skin or fur can even be a sign of more severe illness elsewhere, which is why it’s so important to get your pet seen by a dermatologist as soon as possible if you notice any changes. We specialize in diagnosing and treating chronic and severe skin diseases, auto-immune and hormonal skin diseases, skin manifestations of internal diseases, allergies, chronic ear disease, nail diseases and more.
