Treating Pet Skin Conditions in Fairhaven

There are a variety of chronic and inflammatory skin conditions that can affect dogs and cats, but some are more common than others. Just like humans, pets can suffer from painful and irritating skin conditions, usually falling into one of three categories: allergies, infections, and parasites.

Our veterinarians have the experience and diagnostic tools to differentiate between the various conditions associated with pet skin conditions. This allows for a more accurate diagnosis and the most effective treatment.

What to Expect at Your Pet’s Appointment

Our veterinarians will work with you to determine the cause of your pet's discomfort and will recommend treatment based on their needs.

Examination & Diagnosis

At the beginning of the appointment, our veterinarian will review your pet's history to aid in the diagnosis of their condition. We rely on a variety of diagnostic tests to assist in the diagnosis of your pet’s condition, including skin scrapings, fungal and bacterial cultures, cytology, biopsy, and allergy testing. While some can be done in-house, we also partner with reliable outside laboratories and referral centers when needed.

Treatment Planning

Once the cause of your pet's skin condition has been determined, we will develop a plan to help you treat or manage it. Treatment may include prescription medication, shampoo/conditioner, an ear flush, allergy vaccines, or simple changes to your pet’s environment or diet.
