Scratching, itching, chewing, licking, rubbing, scrubbing, hair loss…
Sound familiar? These signs of skin problems are miserable for both you and your pet! Faulkville Animal Hospital offers treatment for dermatologic conditions and pet allergies. We will help you get to the bottom of the problem and keep you and your pet happy and comfortable.
Common Skin Irritants
If your pet suffers from external parasites such as fleas, ticks, or mites, we have the tools to detect and treat the problem. We use a unique approach to parasite prevention. Rather than recommending a one-size-fits-all product, we work WITH you to determine the best preventive product that meets your pet’s needs. We feel that pet owners must be comfortable with and believe in the products they use for their pet to have the best chance of getting regular doses. For your convenience, we carry a variety of products in house. Don’t want to purchase a full box at once? We offer single doses. If we don’t stock your preferred product, we will order it for you. Our competitively priced online pharmacy offers single dose and multi-dose treatments in many preventives.
Pet Allergies and Treatments
Are recurring skin or ear infections keeping your pet from living their happiest life? If so, your pet may be exhibiting the signs of allergies or an endocrine disorder such as hypothyroidism or Cushing’s Disease. Controlling the underlying disease is the key to reducing the frequency and severity of recurring infections. During your pet’s consultation, we will take a life-history of the symptoms and perform a head-to-tail physical exam. This will help guide us toward knowing which condition your pet may have. Tests for many dermatological conditions can be performed in-house and blood or biopsy samples can be sent to the reference lab for analysis. If needed, we can even refer your pet to a Board Certified Animal Dermatology Specialist in our local area.
Don’t let skin and allergy issues get you and your pet down! Call us today at (912) 748-7800 to schedule a dermatology appointment so that we can get you and your pet on the road to comfort and happiness.
