Allergies & Dermatology

Slide - BG

Is your pet’s constant scratching keeping you both up at night?

There are a wide variety of ailments that can affect 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 Troy Animal Hospital will help get your pet as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your companion feel better, we must determine precisely what’s triggering the problem. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, biopsies and skin scrapings help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological conditions 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 deciding how best to treat it. Depending on the circumstances, we may recommend something as straightforward as applying a topical cream. More complex situations may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of treatment methods. 

Signs of a possible skin concern 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. Give Troy Animal Hospital a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
