Veterinary Dermatology

Just like humans, dogs and cats are susceptible to a variety of skin diseases such as diseases of the ears, hair, and nails. If left untreated, dermatological conditions in pets can lead to serious health concerns and leave your pet feeling miserable.

Court Square Animal Hospital’s veterinarians have advanced training to diagnose and treat most skin problems that may be affecting your pet, including:

  • Allergies (food allergies, inhalant allergens)
  • Chronic and severe skin and ear disease (bacterial, fungal, viral)
  • Immune-mediated and hormonal skin disease
  • Skin manifestations of internal disease
  • Parasitic and infectious skin disease (sarcoptic mange, ringworm)
  • Yeast infections
  • Ear mites
  • Skin cancer and tumors
  • Feline skin disorders

Our dermatology service includes specialized diagnostics such as:

  • Cytology examination and interpretation
  • Bacterial, fungal, and mycobacterial cultures
  • In-house biopsy services
  • Intradermal allergy testing and immunotherapy

Symptoms of Skin Conditions and Allergies in Pets

  • Excessive or constant licking, chewing, biting, scratching, rubbing and/or shaking their head
  • Lesions or hotspots on the skin
  • Hair loss, scabs, or dandruff
  • Noticeable changes in the skin or hair, coat’s color or texture
  • A bad odor from your pet’s skin or ears

If your dog or cat has any of these symptoms, please give us a call and schedule an appointment today.
