Allergies & Dermatology

Companion animals can suffer from many of the same dermatological problems that we humans can, including allergies to food and other environmental factors, as well as infections and skin diseases. If you’ve ever experienced a skin problem, you know all too well how these small issues can impact your whole life, causing itching, pain and an overall reduced quality of life. It’s the same for our pets.

If your companion is experiencing a problem with his or her skin, ears or feet, help is just a phone call away! Healing Paws Veterinary Care offers professional pet dermatology services, including allergy management. We are trained and experienced in identifying, diagnosing and treating a broad range of skin problems, including, but not limited to:

  • Allergies
  • Skin and Ear Infections
  • Parasites
  • Dermatitis
  • Diseases of the Feet and Footpads
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Tumors
  • Skin Cancers

To reach an accurate diagnosis, we use a variety of methods, including skin scrapings, cultures, laboratory testing and biopsies. Once we’ve determined the cause of your pet’s skin problems, we’ll get to work developing a customized treatment plan. Our treatments may include the use of topical and/or oral medications, supplements, therapy or any combination of these. We may also suggest making some changes to your pet’s home environment to remove certain things which might be acting as irritants. Often, we are able to manage the problem without the need for medicine.

Don’t let your four-legged friend suffer from the pain and itchiness of a dermatological problem another moment. Let us help them live a more comfortable life!
