Dogs, cats, rabbits and other small pets can suffer from a variety of skin problems. There are number of causes including infection, fleas and mites, and allergic skin disease which is very common in dogs and cats.
When we visit your pet we will first rule out any fleas or mites on the skin causing irritation we will also treat any infection that may be there.
If we are concerned your pet may have any allergy we will discuss the treatment options and diagnosis of this.
Skin allergies can develop at any age but are usually seen in young animals. We have a set protocol for treating skin allergies and we will clearly explain the process to you if we suspect your pet has an allergy.
