At Cheyenne Veterinary Wellness & Surgical Center, serving Pittsburgh, PA, and Carrick, PA, we can help with your pet’s skin health. We can help treat several conditions in our office, ranging from fleas to dry skin. Below are answers to some common questions our team might receive at our vet clinic.
What Causes Skin Problems?
There are several reasons your pet could experience skin issues. Fungal infections, parasites, and allergies are all some reasons for pets' skin problems. Once a vet from our staff examines your pet, you'll have more confidence in knowing the reasons.
What Are Signs My Pet Needs Pet Dermatology Care?
Pets are unable to communicate with us directly, so you'll need to examine your pet for signs of skin issues. Pets with skin problems might lick themselves incessantly, have bald spots, or even have bleeding. It can be important to make an appointment at our animal clinic in a timely manner if you notice any of these signs.
What Are Treatment Options for My Pet?
After we complete an exam, we can offer you several options to improve your pet's condition. We can prescribe medicine to help stop infections and improve his skin. We might also recommend different grooming products like shampoo, conditioner, or lifestyle changes to improve the skin.
What about Allergy Testing?
We can also perform allergy testing at our office for your pet to help discover the allergen. Once discovered, we can advise you on how best to reduce or eliminate it from your pet’s life.
What Should I Bring to My Appointment?
There are a few things to remember if you have never had an appointment regarding your pet's skin health. Bring a list of any medications your pet is taking or diets you are feeding him. It's easier to diagnose your pet if we have more information about him.
What Can I Do at Home?
Regular vet visits and home remedies can be good ways to combat your pet's skin problems. Let us know any home remedy you're trying so a veterinarian at our animal clinic can ensure it's safe.
