Skin problems and irritations are common conditions in pets and can be caused by several factors. At Friendly Animal Hospital in Huntington Beach, CA, our team diagnoses and treats skin problems in pets. Here are some signs that your pet needs to see our veterinary dermatologist.
Incessant Scratching and Licking
Constant licking and scratching are signs of a more serious skin condition that needs to be treated. Care from our veterinary dermatologist can help prevent serious skin conditions in your pet. Skin problems may also be signs of other health issues that our vet can treat.
Damaged hair follicles caused by skin conditions can cause your pets to lose noticeable amounts of fur on different areas of the body. We can help determine the cause of your pet's balding and apply a corrective treatment plan.
Lesions or Bumps
Scaly skin, bumps, red lesions, or a rash are signs of a possible allergic reaction. Our veterinarian's assessment is the best course of action to provide relief.
Pets are susceptible to dry skin, just like humans. We can prescribe different topical treatments and shampoos to soothe and alleviate the symptoms of dry skin. It's also helpful to reduce the number of baths for your pet. Frequent baths will only dry and irritate the skin more.
Fleas are nagging and cause itching, irritation, and discomfort in your pet. They are common and can even cause allergic reactions in your pet. Flea baths and flea collars are helpful, but an appointment with our veterinarian can help your pet get back to normal.
