Allergies & Dermatology

Slide - BG

Is your pet’s itchy skin keeping you both up at night?

There are a great number of ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be downright unpleasant. You don’t want your pal to suffer and neither do we! 

The professional allergy and dermatology services at Brookville Veterinary Hospital will help get your pet as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your loved one feel better, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem. We may be able to figure out what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies 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 to best treat it. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as basic as applying a topical cream. More complex scenarios may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of treatment methods. 

Signs of a possible skin problem 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 schedule an appointment with Brookville Veterinary Hospital. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
