37-vetHere at Northwest Animal Hospital, we are proud to offer dermatology services for our patients. Dermatology problems are those dealing with the skin. They are some of the most common problems that veterinarians face and can be the most challenging.

We commonly see fleas and other parasites, which can cause skin problems. We also see allergies, infections, autoimmune diseases, and cancers, which can affect a pet’s skin condition.

Skin conditions often start with itchiness that often leads to hair loss. The itchiness can be so bad that pets will continue scratching themselves until they have full-blown skin infections. Some of these happen just once or twice in most pets’ lives, though some pets have constant itchiness. There are times when a problem has been going on for months before an owner reaches out to us for help!

Here at Northwest Animal Hospital, we are determined to get your pets some relief, but first we need to figure out what the problem is. To do this, we offer many dermatologic procedures to determine what is going on. We routinely do allergy and fungal testing. We also do cultures and biopsies when necessary.

If your pets are having skin problems and need to be seen, don’t hesitate to contact us today to schedule an appointment. We can be reached at (763) 475-2448.
