Many people count on their pets to groom themselves, but you might notice that your pet's grooming has become excessive or abnormal. For instance, you may note that your pet has started to bite or scratch himself more often. Perhaps you have noticed quite the opposite, that your pet is not taking care of himself. These are signs of a dermatological issue. Our veterinarians at Cascade Veterinary Center, PS in Marysville, WA, help pets with skin allergies, itchiness, and other symptoms. If you notice your furry friend suffering from a skin issue, our team is here to help.
Consultations for Skin Diseases
Veterinary dermatology professionals can provide a thorough examination to pinpoint the cause and potential treatments for a variety of skin diseases. These health issues can impact the hair, ears, nails, and even teeth of your pet. We will also provide education about your pet's health so that you can avoid triggers in the future.
One of the most common signs of skin allergies in pets is an itch that just doesn't seem to go away. In addition to diagnosis, veterinarians can also provide allergy shots to boost the strength of your pet’s immune system. A proper diagnosis also helps your pet avoid allergy triggers in the home and your yard.
Skin Biopsies & Tumor Removals
If you notice something strange on your pet's skin, you may want to have it tested to ensure it is not cancerous. Our veterinarians can perform a biopsy and ensure that your pet receives the treatment he needs, whether this involves tumor removal or skin cancer treatment.
Treatment for Autoimmune Diseases
The first sign of an autoimmune disease in a pet is often found in an animal's skin or hair. You may notice that your pet is scratching a lot or shows signs of lesions or skin irritation. Dryness and inflammation can also be treated by a veterinarian while we look into potentially related conditions.
Ear Infections & Inflammation
Our veterinarian’s dermatological exam will also include an examination of your pet's ears. Infections and inflammation can lead to an itch and other symptoms. We will diagnose the issue, determine the cause, and provide pain relief treatment.
