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.

      Dr. Cassiday and the rest of the staff are amazing!! One of my dogs suffers from seizures. Originally he was having 2-3 seizures every 3-4 weeks and there was a point last year where we didn't think he was going to make it. Dr. Cassiday worked hard to find a combination of medications that would work for our little guy. We just got home from our annual check up. I am happy to report Kilo is doing great and is 3.5 months seizure free. I can't thank everyone at Ceres Vet enough for everything they do!
