Allergies & Dermatology

Keeping your pet healthy on the outside is just as important as caring for their internal wellness. Companion animals can suffer from many of the same skin problems that humans can, along with many of the same unpleasant symptoms and side effects.

At Oakridge Animal Clinic, we offer a full range of professional pet dermatology services. Our doctors are skilled and experienced in how to identify, diagnose and treat a wide variety of dermatological problems, including those affecting the ears and feet. We’ll get to the bottom of what’s causing your pet’s symptoms and develop an effective treatment plan to get permanent results.

Some of the skin problems we can assist with include, but are not limited to:

  • Allergies
  • Infections
  • Parasites
  • Chronic Ear Infections
  • Autoimmune Disorders
  • Diseases and/or Infections of the Feet
  • Hormonal Disorders
  • Tumors
  • Skin Cancer

We utilize a number of different treatment modalities, which include the use of topical creams, oral or injectable medications, supplements, therapy, surgery, or some combination of these. The exact treatment protocol for your pet will depend on the condition being treated, its severity, and a number of other factors that our doctors will consider.

If your pet is dealing with an allergy, we may also suggest making some changes at home. In many cases, simple changes to things like your pet’s diet and the removal of certain common household items, is often enough to reduce or eliminate symptoms altogether. Again, our doctors will work with you to provide the appropriate guidance and recommendations based on your specific situation.

Don’t let your best friend suffer with the itchiness, discomfort or pain of skin problems. Let the team at Oakridge Animal Clinic help them live a more comfortable life!
