Allergies & Dermatology

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of suffering from a problem with your skin – be it an allergy, infection or something else – you know all too well how uncomfortable it can be. The itching, the pain, and the way it impacts every area of your life, even keeping you awake at night.

Did you know that your pet’s skin can be just as sensitive as yours? In fact, companion animals are susceptible to many of the same dermatological conditions that humans can suffer from – along with many of the same unpleasant symptoms. The good news is there is something you can do to help your four-legged family member live a happier, more comfortable life.

The Holt Veterinary Clinic provides professional pet dermatology services that are designed to keep your loved one as healthy on the outside as he or she is on the inside! Our doctors are experienced in identifying, diagnosing and treating a broad range of dermatological conditions, including those affecting the ears and feet. We’ll use state of the art diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the exact cause of your companion’s symptoms so we can develop the most effective treatment plan possible.

Some of the many dermatological issues we can provide assistance with include, but are not limited to:

  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Dermatitis
  • Parasites
  • Chronic Ear Infections
  • Hormonal Imbalances
  • Diseases of the Paws and Paw Pads
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Tumors
  • Skin Cancer

Once we’ve determined precisely what’s causing your pet’s symptoms, we’ll get to work developing a customized plan to address and overcome the problem once and for all. At the Holt Veterinary Clinic, we use a number of treatment methods, either alone or in combination with one another to help achieve optimum results. These methods may include the use of topical creams, oral or injectable medication, or surgery, if necessary.

Some of the more common signs and symptoms that may indicate that your pet is experiencing a problem with his or her skin, ears or feet include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Bald spots
  • Scabs or sores
  • Unusual lumps or bumps
  • Biting, chewing or licking at the affected area
  • Odor coming from the ears
  • Sleeplessness

If you notice any of these things, don’t wait another moment! Call to schedule a dermatological evaluation. We can help your loved one live a happier, more comfortable life.
