Dermatology

 

Skin related disorders are responsible for a significant number of visits from our clients and their pets every day.  It is important to diagnose the causes of skin diseases rather than just put a “band aid” on the problem and have it recur over and over.Allergy plays a significant role in the field of dermatology.  We offer comprehensive allergy testing for both environmental allergens as well as food allergens.  Fortunately, most allergy treatments are with a daily oral drop instead of the injections that were previously the mainstay of treatment.Some of the diagnostic techniques we offer for dermatology are:Skin Biopsy with specialist; dermatopathologySkin cultures, both bacterial and fungal testing.Skin scraping, which identifies types of skin parasites and infections.Allergy testing with a blood sample.Food Allergy TrialsGlandular disorder screening.  Low thyroid levels or excess cortisol levels can cause skin symptoms.We also have professional grooming at both our offices.  Medicated bathing with pulsing warm water sprays using a device called HydroSurge hastens the recovery from many skin diseases and makes your pet feel better right away.Some of the therapies we offer are:Hyposensitization for allergy symptoms.Homeopathic remedies.Antihistamine therapyAdvanced medications for moderate to severe allergy (also termed atopy).HydroSurge medicated baths.Advanced antibiotic therapies.Elimination of primary or secondary yeast infections.Balancing and treatment of hormonal abnormalities.Parasite elimination; fleas, ticks, mites, other ectoparasites.

 I will definitely be bringing my future pets back to this place. Very professional and helpful ! Also I had called a few places for reptile examinations and by far the best price I was able to find.
