At Avenue Animal Hospital, we provide thorough skin and coat evaluations with accompanying diagnostics such as skin scraping and cytology. This allows us to treat various conditions, such as environmental and flea allergies, skin infections, or mites. Treatment might include special diets, shampoos or similar products, and medical management with pharmaceuticals.
Symptoms of Health Problems
The chewing. The scratching. The licking. These behaviors are all too familiar to many pet parents and they can be symptoms of a significant health problem. It could be allergies, an infection, stress or any one of many issues, and it’s important your pet see the vet when these symptoms start to happen.
At Avenue Animal Hospital we can examine and test your pet and based on the diagnosis, provide you with treatment options that will provide relief to your pet—and you as well.
