Here in North Texas allergies can be a big issue year round, but the spring and autumn months are often the worst. Rather than developing upper respiratory symptoms like many people do, animals often manifest their allergies through their skin, developing itching, irritation, and atopy. Hair loss and constant scratching can indicate fleas, general allergies, food allergies, or other more serious skin conditions.
We provide specialized dermatological services to all of our patients including skin scrapes, allergy testing and injections, and various products to treat or alleviate symptoms. We are also happy to refer you to a Dermatology Specialist in our area if we feel that’s in the best interest of your pet.
