Did you know that our animal companions can experience many of the same skin conditions as we humans can, including allergies and infections? These skin conditions can cause itchiness, discomfort and even pain, ultimately affecting your pet’s quality of life. If you suspect your pet may be suffering from some type of skin problem, Cambie Animal Hospital can help. We are experienced in all aspects of animal dermatology and we can help your pet live a more comfortable life.
Through a comprehensive process of external examination and diagnostic testing, our skilled veterinarians are able to identify, diagnose and provide treatment for a wide variety of skin disorders, reducing symptoms and often eliminating the problem altogether. We offer a broad range of treatment options, including topical medications, supplements, therapy, oral medication or any combination of these.
Depending on your pet’s condition, we may also conduct a thorough analysis of their lifestyle at home to determine whether some changes in their environment might help control or eliminate the dermatological problem they are experiencing. For instance, sometimes just making some simple changes to your pet’s diet or removing certain irritants from your home can take care of the problem once and for all. Rest assured that we’ll do everything we can to provide your pet with relief.
Some of the signs that your pet may be experiencing skin problems include:
- Excessive scratching, licking or biting at the skin
