Many pet parents are all too familiar with itching and dermatology problems, which can be symptoms of a significant health problem. It could be an infection, stress, an autoimmune disorder, or any one of many issues, and it’s important your pet sees the vet when these symptoms start to happen.  

It Itches!

Allergies are a common cause of dermatology problems in pets, and the frequent itching or excessive chewing at paws may indicate that your pet has allergies. Like us, our pets can have allergies to food or things in the environment. May pets can also be highly flea allergic, so keeping your furry friend on parasite prevention year-round is essential to healthy skin. 

There are many options for treating dermatology issues in pets. At Lee Animal Hospital, we can examine and test your pet and, based on the diagnosis, offer treatment options that will provide much-needed relief to your pet—and to you as well.
