Our team has experience in a variety of disorders that effect the skin, ears, hair, and nails. We also have expertise in the treatment of allergies and immunology to address conditions such as allergic induced skin conditions, skin cancer, parasitic infections, chronic ear infections, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disease, and peri-anal furunculosis.
Your pet can experience an allergic reaction to substances they breathe, eat, and touch. Common indications of an allergic reaction include scratching, chewing, ear infections, hot spots, vomiting, and diarrhea. Help your companion by being aware of the symptoms and paying attention to the changing seasons.
We test for allergens by collecting a blood sample, which reveals the substance your pet is reacting to. However, many pets are allergic to more than one substance. We have found that if one allergen is controllable, the other will likely subside.
Types of allergens:
- Contact allergens: grass/weeds, fleas, wool, and household cleaning products
- Inhaled allergens: weeds, pollen, dust, dust mites, and mold spores
- Food allergens: wheat, grains, protein sources such as chicken, beef, and pork
