Dermatology: Skin Care - Allergy, Parasitic Infections
If left untreated, allergy-related conditions can fester and become serious health concerns for your pet.
Therefore, it is important to be able to identify the first signs and symptoms of allergies and dermatological conditions. These include:
• Inflamed ears
• Hotspots, especially those that recur
• Rubbing the eyes or mouth area
• Lesions on the skin
• Hair loss
• Red itchy bumps on the skin
• Asthma-like wheezing or respiratory issues
These problems can indicate a serious dermatological or allergic reaction to allergens such as fleas, pollen, dust and various foods. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important that you bring your pet to Elmwood Animal Hospital for an evaluation. If left untreated, these problems can become severe medical concerns.
At Elmwood Animal Hospital, we take the time to explain your pet's condition, how to prevent future occurrences and the proper method of treatment.
