Pets With Chronic Skin Conditions
Managing chronic skin conditions sometimes requires a trial and error process to find solutions that will best help your pet.
If your pet has a severe, chronic condition that is not responding to standard treatments we may refer you to a board-certified veterinary dermatologist and work with them to ensure your pet receives the best care possible.
What to Expect at Your Pet’s Appointment
Our vet dermatologists will work with you to determine the cause of your pet's condition and create a customized treatment plan.
Examination & Diagnosis
First, we will review your pet's history and ask you questions about their home life, diet, and activities. Next, we will use the diagnostic tools at our in-house laboratory to establish the source of your pet’s skin condition.
Once the cause of your pet's skin condition has been determined, we will develop a treatment plan that may include prescription medication, shampoo/conditioner, an ear flush, allergy vaccines, or changes to your pet's diet or environment.
