Desert Dunes Animal Hospital offers allergy and dermatological services to keep your pet as healthy on the inside as on the outside.
All pets itch at one time or another, that’s normal. However, when you start to notice that your pet is itching more frequently or all day long, it’s time to have your pet checked by your veterinarian. An examination and diagnostics by your veterinarian can help determine if the itch is due to an infection, parasites allergies and even genetics. Allergies can be triggered by pollens, molds, dust mites and other allergens in the environment.
In the desert area (The Coachella Valley) most pets with itchy skin are suffering from environmental allergies, these allergies can be treated with injections, prescriptions and diet changes. Allergies can also be food related.
Some forms of Dermatitis can be lifelong conditions, the sooner your pet is diagnosed by a doctor the sooner we can get your pet back on the road to a happy itch free life and back to doing all the things they love doing again.
