A common issue with many pets in the Asheville, North Carolina, area is allergies and skin conditions related to allergic reactions. The experienced veterinarians at All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center are incredibly effective in diagnosing and treating skin conditions in both dogs and cats. Many factors may cause allergic reactions in our pets including food allergies, flea allergy dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and contact allergens such as grass or pollen. Our doctors can diagnose and treat allergic conditions, regardless of the underlying cause.
Treatment of dermatological issues in animals has improved dramatically over recent years, and the doctors at All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center treat these cases with the safest and most efficacious products available in veterinary medicine. In the past, steroids and antihistamines were the only products available for treatment of skin issues in pets. New therapies such as sublingual immunotherapy and oral and injectable medications have made allergic conditions in pets much more manageable and safer to control. Oral sublingual immunotherapy involves placing small amounts of allergens in the mouth of the pet in order to build up resistance when they encounter this particular substance. New oral and injectable allergy medications are also available for dogs, which are also extremely safe and effective for both short and long-term conditions.
If your pet has itching that goes beyond normal scratching, or if you notice skin abrasions and hair loss, they may be suffering from allergies. Set an appointment with one of our caring doctors at All Pets Animal Hospital and Rehabilitation Center and put an end to the discomfort associated with skin conditions in your pet.
