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.
To get your pet on the path to healthy skin, we must identify precisely what’s causing the problem in the first place.

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.
