Their reaction is to scratch or lick constantly at the source of their troubles. If you notice your pet struggling with itchy skin or other skin irritations, or is sneezing constantly and has watery eyes, first, contact your family vet. If, after treatment, the symptoms don’t going away, you may need to be referred to a veterinary dermatologist.
Veterinary dermatologists specialize in the treatment of skin problems in pets. Typically, our BluePearl specialists are board-certified, so they’re experts in this field. They use many different diagnostic tests that your family vet may not have access to to pinpoint a pet’s problem. They can then prescribe ointments, medicated shampoos or medications to relieve your pet’s suffering. Other services include surgery, freezing or laser treatment.
