Persistent scratching, biting and licking by our pets is not a sign of good grooming habits. It is indicative of skin allergies or even skin disease. Brainerd Hills Veterinary Hospital has numerous years of experience in diagnosing, treating and even curing skin conditions brought on by different sources.
Skin issues may arise from any of the following conditions:
Usually treatment starts with testing, which is most likely a skin scraping taken by our doctors and examined under a microscope. If needed, we are able to send the samples off for a more detailed examination in a qualified laboratory. Once our doctors are able to establish what exactly your pet is suffering from, we offer several treatment options for your pet. This not only includes oral medicine, but also topical medicines as well as specially formulated pet food.
