Dermatology Services for Pets

Skin issues in pets are very common and may be due to many different reasons. Your pet may develop dermatological issues due to an allergic reaction, yeast infection, parasites, dermatitis or other illnesses. As a pet owner, fur, skin, nail or hair problems will be easy to spot in your pet. The good thing is these issues are usually treatable and your pet can be back to their normal health in no time.

What are signs that my dog/cat has skin issues?

Each case is different and so the signs may manifest in different ways. The good thing is since the skin is the largest organ it is pretty hard to miss abnormalities. As your pet’s guardian, it is important you stay vigilant and bring your pet to a vet once you notice any of the following changes:

  • Bald patches
  • Dandruff
  • Excessive licking and scratching
  • Thinning fur or dull coat
  • Redness, skin sores, scaling
  • Abnormal body odour
  • Lumps

    How can I treat my pet’s skin issues?

    Before you follow a DIY remedy from the internet you should take your pet to the vet to determine the cause of your pet’s symptoms. Our veterinarians may run blood tests to give your pet the correct diagnosis and the proper treatment plan. You should never leave a skin problem to go away on its own as it may cause serious illness. If your pet is having skin issues we encourage you to come in and talk with us. Call 506.455.1700 for an appointment.
