Skin & Allergy

Your Local, Family-Owned, Independent Vet Practice

Itchy and irritated skin is one of the most common things we see in veterinary practice. It can be as simple and easy to treat as fleas or lice, but other causes take a little more investigation.

Allergic skin disease is very common in dogs and cats and can be challenging to treat. However there are many excellent treatment options, and while allergies cannot be cured, good long-term control is achievable and affordable in most cases and it can dramatically improve your pet’s quality of life. We have a well established process to optimise the cost effectiveness of managing this condition.

There is a vast spectrum of symptoms for allergic skin disease that can be as mild as minor seasonal itchiness or as distressing as chronic ear infections and very itchy skin that leads to hair loss, red, raw, inflamed or infected skin from constant scratching. It can be very distressing both for you and your pet.

If your pet has sore, smelly ears, itchy skin, or hair loss, please make an appointment to come and see us. The earlier we detect it, the easier it will be to manage it, and most importantly the sooner we can help make your pet comfortable again.
