Pet Allergy Testing/Dermatology

Reliable Pet Dermatology in Indianapolis IN

Pet dermatological problems can arise from a variety of factors and in an array of different forms. Common possible skin irritants include parasites (like mites, fleas, and ticks), allergies (to certain types of food, inhalants like pollen or dust, and materials or fabrics like wool), or even secondary infections from conditions such as hypothyroidism. You may notice one or more of the following symptoms if your pet is experiencing one of these issues:

  • Sores, bumps, blisters, or scabs
  • Rash
  • Hives
  • Irritated or discolored skin
  • Excessive scratching, licking, chewing
  • Head shaking
  • Swollen eyelids or runny eyes
  • Dull coat
  • Greasy or flaky skin
  • Shedding with scaly skin underneath
  • Hair loss
  • Hot spots
  • Hard lumps
  • Sneezing
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Snoring

Veterinary Allergy Testing and Treatment

When any of the symptoms listed above occurs, it is important to schedule an appointment with us sooner rather than later. Pet skin problems, most notably those caused by allergies, have proven to be extremely uncomfortable. The longer the condition is left untreated, the more discomfort and pain your pet will feel. During your visit, we will thoroughly examine your furry friend, ask you questions about your companion’s daily behaviors, and proceed with any necessary testing for parasites, allergies, or infections. Immediately upon diagnosis, our trusted veterinarian will devise a customized treatment plan tailored to the specific needs of your pet. It is our mission to bring your pet back to health with only the most quality, reliable, and comfortable treatments possible.

Paths to treatment may include any of the following, all of which are available through the convenience of our dependable onsite or online veterinary pharmacy:

  • Flea and tick control and prevention
  • Specialty diets
  • Topical ointments
  • Antibiotics
  • Anti-inflammatory medications
  • Specialty shampoos and other rinses
  • Steroids
