Pet Dermatology at Lincoln Park Veterinary Hospital

Pet Dermatology

If your pet is suffering from allergies or other dermatological conditions, Lincoln Park Veterinary Hospital can help relieve the symptoms of your pet’s skin or allergy problems. Our dermatology services will help diagnose and treat a variety of dermatological conditions such as:

  • Food allergies
  • Contact allergies
  • Allergic reactions to inhalants and fleas
  • Autoimmune related skin conditions
  • Parasites (fleas and mites)
  • Infectious diseases (bacterial and fungal)
  • Recurring ear infections
  • Hormonal diseases

Symptoms of Skin and Allergy Conditions

Allergies and skin issues can cause significant discomfort and irritation, making your dog or cat feel downright miserable. Common signs of skin and allergy conditions include:

  • Excessive scratching and face rubbing
  • Excessive licking of the feet, legs, or abdomen
  • Localized hair loss
  • Biting and chewing at the skin
  • Recurring skin infections
  • Frequent ear infections
  • Chronic anal sac problems

Treating Skin and Allergy Conditions

To determine the cause of your pet’s allergy or skin condition, our veterinarians can perform a test called serum allergy testing, when necessary. With serum allergy testing, we take a small blood sample which is then processed at an outside laboratory. This test will help us identify the specific allergens that are causing your pet’s allergic reaction. Once we have identified the cause, your pet may be treated using a serum that contains small quantities of these allergens. Over time, this will reduce the response to the problem allergens and relieve your pet of their symptoms.
