Dog allergies and cat allergies can negatively impact your fur baby's quality of life. When your fur baby seems unwell, it is not always easy to identify the underlying cause. Allergies in fur babies often go untreated because they cannot tell you how they feel. At The Vet on 4th, we can test and diagnosis allergies in cats and dogs. If we discover that your fur baby is suffering from allergies, we have treatment options available to alleviate symptoms, prevent future problems, and get your fur baby feeling great again.
Your fur babies may be covered in fur but their skin still needs attention from time to time. Allergies can cause itchy skin in your fur babies and lead to excessive scratching. Other conditions can cause extremely dry skin, bumps or lumps under the skin, and infections. If your fur family is suffering with skin problems because of allergies, the treatment may be as simple as changing the food they eat or the soap you use in their bath. However, skin problems can also point to more serious issues, such as cancer. It is important to address any skin issues your fur baby experiences because they may be pointing to a more serious underlying issue. We can help with all of your fur baby's dermatological needs.
