Skin Allergy & Dermatology

Skin allergy in dogs and cats is a very common and a sometimes, frustrating disease. Thankfully, there are many ways to help your pets. Unfortunately, most of the symptoms presented to us are not always as simple as itchy skin. Often, as a result of the dog or cat biting and scratching their skin uncontrollably, other issues arise such as yeast or bacterial skin infections, hot spots, ear infections, hair loss and more. It is for this reason that when diagnosing and treating the issue, you must not only treat the cause but also the resulting issues.

At Foothills, our team will work with you and your pet to try and determine the cause of the itching so that we can treat theproblem and then have strategies in place to prevent future outbreaks and recurrence.

Our vets work closely with specialists in this field who can help to diagnose and treat those difficult cases.
