A combination of several treatment methods may be suggested if we feel it will help us achieve the best results.

Allergy Care

Companion animals can be allergic to many things they encounter in their day to day lives. This could include certain food ingredients, or environmental factors such as dust or pollen. If our diagnostic efforts determine that your pet is experiencing an allergy we will take the appropriate steps to determine the root cause. From there, we will work with you to develop a long-term strategy that will reduce symptoms and keep reactions to a minimum.

If your pet has been scratching a lot or showing other signs of a potential skin problem, give us a call right away. We’ll make sure that special little guy or gal doesn’t suffer another moment.
