Treating Pet Skin Conditions in Ceres

There are a variety of chronic and inflammatory skin conditions that can affect dogs and cats, but some are more common than others. These include allergies, bacterial infections, fungal infections, chronic scratching, skin parasites and hair loss. 

With years of training and experience in veterinary dermatology, our specialist can differentiate between the various conditions associated with pet skin conditions. This allows for a more accurate diagnosis and the most effective treatment.

Our Board-Certified Dermatologist

A board-certified veterinary dermatologist has completed additional training after veterinary school in dermatology. Throughout this training, a dermatologist is also required to complete an internship and specialized residency, pass comprehensive exams, and complete publication requirements to become board-certified in Veterinary Dermatology by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM).

What to Expect at Your Pet’s Appointment

Our dermatology specialist 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 veterinary dermatologist will review your pet's history to aid in the diagnosis of their condition. Next, they will use the diagnostic tools at our in-house laboratory to establish the source of your pet’s skin condition.

Treatment Planning

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