Allergy, Ear, & Skin Care Services

Like people, animals can have allergic reactions to foods, as well as indoor and outdoor allergens. The big difference is that they cannot tell us how they feel, so we have to pay careful attention to our pets’ skin and ears.

pet allergy care and dermatology

If your pet experiences any of the following symptoms, it’s time to bring him or her in for a dermatology visit:

  • Chronic itching or scratching
  • Hair loss
  • Ear infections
  • Skin or ear odor
  • Inflamed or red skin
  • Sores, welts, or rashes

There are three main types of allergies that affect animals:

  • Food allergies will typically cause itching year-round, and pets may rub their faces or ears on household surfaces, scoot on their rear ends, or lick their feet excessively.
  • Environmental allergies are caused by mold, pollen, and dust mites. Pets with allergic dermatitis from environmental allergies will be itchy, have reoccurring ear or skin infections, and may show cold-like symptoms including sneezing, coughing, and a runny nose.
  • Fleabite allergies may make an already itchy problem more painful. Pets that are allergic to fleabites can have swelling, hair loss, excessive scratching, skin infections, and even become anemic.

“I can't say enough about how great this hospital is. Everyone is very caring and gentle with the animals. They truly understand that the pets are scared. They don't just treat the pet. They sit with the pet, love it and calm it down. They explain everything in detail. And even though they might get slapped in the face 3 times with a wing, they love the animal. DR. CAILYN PEASE... You are the wind beneath my ducks wings...”
