Does your pet’s itchy skin have you both losing sleep?

There are many ailments that can affect an animal’s skin, and the symptoms can range from unpleasant to painful. You don’t want your pet to suffer and neither do we! 

Heron Lakes Animal Hospital’s professional allergy and dermatology services will 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 identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong through a cursory exam, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies provide the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological concerns we 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 way to treat it. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may call for a longer-term strategy or involve multiple 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 schedule an appointment. Contact Heron Lakes Animal Hospital today. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
