Pet Allergies/Dermatology Services in Greenland
Has your pet been scratching himself a lot lately? Have you noticed bald spots or dandruff? If the answer is yes, it may be the result of an allergy or other skin disorder, which can be very uncomfortable. An allergy/skin disorder is typically the body’s reaction to a certain substance, whether it’s a food, environmental allergen, or parasite. We want to help your pet be comfortable again, just as much as you do. That’s why we offer a variety of dermatology services here at Greenland Veterinary Hospital that can help with:
- Hot spots
- Lick granulomas
- ….and other conditions
Our facility is equipped to both diagnose and treat a variety of skin conditions in cats, dogs, and other species to put an end to your pet’s discomfort.
About Your Pet’s Dermatology Visit
At your pet’s dermatology exam here in Greenland, we’ll ask you a series of questions to begin the diagnostic process, one of which will involve your pet’s specific symptoms. We may recommend advanced diagnostics, including food allergy trials, a skin culture, or skin cytology to determine the source of your pet’s condition. Once an official diagnosis is made, and the source of your pet’s condition is found, we can develop a treatment plan. For difficult-to-manage allergy cases, we offer Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) at our sister location, Canobie Lake Veterinary Hospital, which can provide long-term relief.
