Skin-related conditions and allergies are some of the most common reasons why pet owners seek care at Neighborhood Veterinary Centers. Fortunately, our veterinarians have extensive dermatology knowledge and can provide a precise diagnosis and effective relief for your itchy pet.
Dermatological signs in pets
Your pet’s skin and coat are important indicators of their overall health. Schedule an appointment if you notice any abnormalities, including:
- Frequent itching, chewing, or licking
- Redness or irritation
- Unusual hair loss
- Head shaking or ear scratching
- Hives, bumps, or a rash
- Hot spots
- Dry skin
- Rubbing the face, ears, or hind end on carpet or furniture
Chronic itching, scratching, and smelly ears are not normal, so if your pet is suffering from a chronic skin condition or allergies, contact Neighborhood Veterinary Centers for a dermatology consultation.
