Skin Diseases and Allergies

 

If you’ve  had the misfortune of suffering  with allergic condition affecting your skin, whether it be poison ivy, or exzcema you know how miserable it can be. The itching and pain, and the way it affects every area of your life, 24 hours a day.

 Your pet’s skin is just as sensitive as yours. In fact, companion animals are susceptible to many of the same skin conditions that we suffer from, as well as the same miserable symptoms. Fortunately, there are many things we can do to help your four-legged family member to a happier, more comfortable life.

The Holt Veterinary Clinic provides professional pet dermatology services that are designed to keep your loved one as healthy on the outside as he or she is on the inside! Our doctors are experienced in identifying, diagnosing and treating a broad range of dermatological conditions, including those affecting the ears and feet. We’ll use state of the art diagnostic techniques to pinpoint the exact cause of your companion’s symptoms so we can develop the most effective treatment plan possible.

  • Allergies
