Does your pet’s constant scratching have you both losing sleep?

There are a wide variety of ailments that can affect the health of a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want your best friend to suffer and neither do we! 

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Cherry Ridge Veterinary Clinic are designed to help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your pet feel better, we must first determine the precise cause of the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong through a cursory exam, or we may need to dig deeper. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological issues 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 identified the problem, the next step is determining how to best treat it. 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 multimodal treatment approach. 

Signs of a potential 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 contact Cherry Ridge Veterinary Clinic and schedule an appointment. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
