Allergies & Dermatology

If your pet spends most of their day scratching, they could be suffering from allergies or dermatologic issues.

Healthy and itch-free life

Many ailments can affect a dog or cat’s skin, and when left untreated, they can have serious consequences. From hot spots and rashes to infections, skin problems cause a wide range of unpleasant symptoms and can leave your four-legged best friend feeling downright miserable. Fortunately, the veterinarians at Lakeside Animal Hospital are here to help. We provide comprehensive pet allergy and dermatology services in Plantation and will do everything we can to give your pet the healthy, itch-free life they deserve.

Diagnosing and Treating Allergies and Skin Conditions

Pets who suffer from allergies and skin conditions may experience a wide range of symptoms, including: 
  • Excessive scratching
  • Scabbing or flaking of the skin
  • Hot spots
  • Increased shedding/hair loss
  • Biting, chewing, or licking the affected area
  • Lumps or bumps on or under the skin
If your pet exhibits any of these symptoms, diagnosing the cause is the first priority. In some cases, our veterinarians can diagnose the issue during a physical examination. In other situations, they may need to do blood work, skin scraping, or biopsies to reach a diagnosis. Once we know the cause, we can prescribe the right course of treatment. 

The most common causes of skin problems in pets include: 
  • Allergies (Food and/or environmental)
  • Infections (Chronic or acute)
  • Dermatitis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Parasites
  • Tumors
  • Skin cancer
Based on the cause of your pet’s discomfort, we’ll create a customized treatment plan to achieve the best possible results. Depending on the situation, the solution could be as simple as a topical cream or oral antibiotic. However, for more complex cases, we may recommend a combination of treatment modalities. 

Some problems — like allergies — are incurable. But we can manage them so your pet can enjoy a healthier and more comfortable life. Our recommendations will always be based on your pet’s needs and how to provide maximum relief.
