ANIMAL DERMATOLOGY & PET SKIN CARE AT OUR ROCKLIN, CA ANIMAL HOSPITAL
Scratching, whining, skin sores, excessive hair loss, bad smell—pet skin problems can be both alarming and frustrating to a concerned pet owner. Addressing such problems take time and dedication to diagnose accurately and treat successfully. Your veterinarians at Rocklin Road Animal Hospital are experienced in diagnosing and treating a variety of skin issues in dogs and cats, and we will work with you to find the most comfortable and successful solution.
Accurate diagnosis of skin diseases and conditions is our priority. We must rely on a complete medical history provided by you, a comprehensive, hands-on physical examination to rule out any systemic issues or diseases and to assess the overall health and condition of your pet. Diagnostic testing will likely be required and may include:
- Blood work
- Allergy testing
- Skin scrapings
- Fungal cultures
- Skin biopsies and cytologies
Once we know what is causing the issue, medications will be prescribed and filled in our in-house Pharmacy.
We never want your pets to suffer—if you suspect your pet has a skin problem, contact our office to schedule an immediate appointment. See our article on Itchy Skin In Cats.
