Dogs and cats have allergies too! Atopic dermatitis is an itchy skin disease of dogs and cats. In atopic dermatitis, an allergic reaction occurs when a pet inhales airborne substances (pollen, mold or house dust) or eats a substance to which they are sensitive. The allergic reaction causes the animal to itch, resulting in rubbing, licking, biting or scratching.
In addition to allergies, there are many skin diseases that affect dogs and cats. These skin conditions can only be diagnosed after more common hormonal abnormalities are excluded. Dermatology care covers allergy testing, itchy dog and cat, dry skin, hair loss and all related issues. If your pet is exhibiting any of these symptoms or is suffering from alopecia (hair loss) or other skin conditions, please give us a call. We will thoroughly examine your pet and discuss further diagnostic testing and treatment options with you.
