We help your pet feel better.
We know that allergies can cause problems for pets in Southern California, and we’re experienced in recognizing, diagnosing, and treating diseases of the skin of animals. During the diagnosis period, we’ll look at your pet’s entire body, including the ear, hair, nail, and mouth. Many animal skin diseases are similar to conditions in humans, and training in comparative medicine is important. However, most veterinary skin disorders are unique and may occur in only one of the many types of animals a veterinarian cares for.
These dermatological issues range from skin cancer to allergies, and treatment options vary tremendously. Skin disease can also present as a manifestation of an underlying internal disease process. Thus, in addition to dermatology, we’re are also trained in internal medicine, immunology, and allergy.
Common symptoms of skin disease:
- Does your pet constantly lick, chew, bite, scratch or shake his or her head?
- Is there hair loss, scabs or dandruff?
- Do you notice a change in the skin or coat’s color or texture?
- Is there a bad odor from the pet’s skin or ears?
Common skin diseases are caused by, and include the following:
- Environmental contaminants
- Mites (i.e. sarcoptic mange, demodicosis)
- Autoimmune skin diseases
- Superficial and deep skin infections
- Skin masses
