Just like humans, animals can develop allergies to a variety of things. Some of the most common allergies we see include food-allergic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and flea-allergy dermatitis.
Allergies cause a wide range of symptoms. If your pet has any of the following symptoms, we encourage you to bring them in for allergy testing:
- Excessive scratching
- Hot spots
- Fur loss
- Excessive licking or chewing
- Swelling of the ears, face, eyelids, lips, or earflaps
- Chronic ear infections
- Runny eyes
Our experienced team has the knowledge and skills to accurately diagnose your pet's allergies using a variety of tests. We use Nexmune laboratory for allergy testing as well as hyposensitization treatments. We may also recommend an elimination diet if we suspect that food allergies are the source of your pet’s discomfort.
