Allergies & Dermatology

Is your pet’s itchy skin keeping you both up at night?

There are many different ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin. Whether it’s a topical problem, like a hot spot or rash, or something more in-depth like an infection, the symptoms can be unpleasant. You don’t want to see your pal suffer like that, and neither do we! That’s why Pendleton Veterinary Clinic offers professional pet allergy and dermatology services as part of our comprehensive system of care. We want to help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

The first step toward helping your best friend feel better again is identifying the precise condition he or she is experiencing. Our hospital is outfitted with an in-house laboratory, which allows us to run a number of diagnostic tests quickly and efficiently. We may be able to tell what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some of the dermatological issues we can provide assistance with include:

  • Allergies (food and/or environmental)
  • Infections (acute or chronic)
  • Parasites
  • Dermatitis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Tumors
  • Skin cancer

Developing a Treatment Plan

To determine how best to treat the problem, we will consider a number of unique factors. This allows us to develop a tailor-made approach just for your pet, designed to achieve the best possible results. Depending on the situation, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex conditions may call for a combination of treatment methods.

Allergies require a little more work to manage. Once we understand what’s causing your pet’s reactions, we will work toward a solution that will eliminate outbreaks as much as possible. Some allergies can be managed through lifestyle changes, such as switching food products. Others may require a longer-term strategy. Our recommendations will be based on your companion’s specific needs.

Signs of a possible skin problem include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Scabbing or flaking of the skin
  • Hot spots
  • Shedding more than usual
  • Biting, chewing or licking at the affected area
  • Bumps or lumps on or under the skin

If you notice any of these signs or symptoms, it’s time to schedule an appointment. Give the experienced professionals at Pendleton Veterinary Clinic a call. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.

      Fantastic experience! From my initial phone call to request an appointment as a new client I was impressed. The front office was so accommodating and kind. The online forms ahead of time was all so easy. The day of our appointment we met Eric our vet tech. He was so nice, gentle,explained everything and happily answered all questions. Then we met Dr. Crabtree. He greeted us with a smile, hand shake and so nice. He was gentle, thorough and kindly answered all my questions. I was thrilled with the entire staff and how they treated myself and my dog! Highly recommend!!

      After working with Dr. Fisher and Miranda (vet tech) at a veterinary ER in Indy, I had no doubt I’d bring my fur kids to them once they moved to the general practice side of the veterinary field. 13/10 recommend these ladies! Amazing people, beyond knowledgeable, and will always be honest with you.
