ALLERGIES & DERMATOLOGY

Does your pet’s constant scratching have you both losing sleep?

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

Village Vet of Urbana’s professional allergy and dermatology services are designed to help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To get your pet on the path to healthy skin, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem in the first place. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to dig deeper. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some dermatological conditions we routinely 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 pinpointed the problem, the next step is determining how to best treat it. Depending on the situation, we may suggest something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may call for a longer-term strategy or involve multiple 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 spot any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Give Village Vet of Urbana a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.
