Here at St. Francis Veterinary Clinic, we are happy to be able to offer dermatology services to our patients.
Dermatology revolves around the skin. Many pets routinely have skin problems, which can be quite challenging for our veterinarians.
Some of the skin problems we routinely see include fleas and other parasites. Our office also commonly sees allergies, infections, autoimmune diseases, and cancers that affect a pet’s skin condition.
Many pets itch when they are faced with a skin condition. Left untreated, pets can lose their hair. This still won’t stop them from scratching, and pets can develop skin infections from all of their itching. Some pets have skin problems only once in awhile, while others seem to be scratching all of the time.
We will do everything that we can do to get your pets some relief, though first we need to determine the cause of your pet’s itchiness. We are proud to be able to offer our patients many dermatologic procedures. We offer allergy and fungal testing, along with cultures and biopsies if needed.
