Many of our patients suffer from dermatological issues including itchy skin, hot spots, dry/flaky skin, and coarse coat or patchy fur. These symptoms can indicate a bacterial or fungal infection, allergies or other medical causes. We utilize diagnostic tools such as skin cytology, skin biopsies, and skin scrapes to identify what is present on the surface of the skin. At West Coast Animal Hospital, we are well-versed at treating dermatology cases and are proud to offer a multi-faceted line of defense to get your pet relief. Through medicated shampoos, flea/tick preventatives, hypoallergenic diets, oral and topical medications, we can make a comprehensive treatment plan to keep your pet’s skin issues under control.
