Allergies & Dermatology

You may have visited a dermatologist once or twice in your life. Perhaps you’ve experienced your fair share of skin problems, whether an allergy, infection or something else. If so, you understand all too well how unpleasant these problems can be. Did you know that our animal companions can suffer from many of these same skin conditions?

Dermatological problems can cause your pet to experience a number of unwelcome symptoms and side effects, including itchiness, discomfort and even pain, ultimately decreasing their quality of life. Don’t let your companion suffer another moment. Enlist the help of our experts at Ceres Veterinary Clinic.

Our doctors are trained and experienced at identifying and diagnosing a wide variety of dermatological disorders in animals, including problems with the ears and paws. We’ll work hard to get to the bottom of what’s causing your pet’s allergies or other skin problems and develop a customized treatment plan to help reduce or eliminate the symptoms and provide your pet with some much-needed relief.

Some of the skin problems we can provide assistance for include:

  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Parasites
  • Cancer Screening
  • Genetic Testing
  • Anal Gland Expression
  • Toe Nail Trimming
  • Foxtail Removal

We employ a broad range of testing methods to uncover the root of the problem, including skin scrapings, cytology, laboratory testing and biopsies. Once we’ve determined the reason behind your pet’s discomfort, we can then turn to a number of treatment options to help address the problem once and for all. These treatment options may include the use of topical creams, oral medication, injections, therapy, surgery or some combination of these. We may also recommend making some changes to your pet’s home environment to hopefully alleviate the problem without the need for medication.

Not sure if your pet is experiencing a dermatological problem? Some of the more common signs and symptoms to look for include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Licking, biting or chewing at the affected area
  • Rubbing against furniture or other objects in attempt to scratch
  • Bald spots
  • Scabbing
  • Unusual lumps or bumps

If you notice any of these things, even if it’s minor, we recommend bringing your pet in for a full dermatological exam and analysis. We’re prepared to get to the bottom of the problem and develop an appropriate course of treatment to help your companion live a happier, more comfortable life.

      I was a little unhappy with unexpected cost to get my Pink Princess better. However, I want to say that Ceres Veterinary Clinic has some amazing doctors and staff. I love how they care for your animal. It so cute how you see your dog name on the board outside when you walk up. They provide 5 star service! I'm very pleased with them.

      when we got our 6 week old Bassett hound we thought we had a healthy pup four days of having her she was sick and no vet would take us in Dr Cassidy welcomed us. none of us thought she would survive but here it is 2 years later and miss copper is healthy. Then we had to bring in our english mastiff with possibilities of having to either amputate or put her down. today miss molly mae is fully recovered with all four legs.
