Treatment in Allergic skin diseases

  • Intradermal skin testing - This allows a knowledge base of the environmental allergens your animal may be allergic to.

  • Allergen specific immunotherapy - After the intradermal skin test is performed, a unique mixture of allergens will be made for each individual dog based on their test results.

  • Medical management - A large number of medications, supplements, and topical treatments are available for dogs with allergic skin diseases.

 

Advanced Ear procedures

  • Deep ear cleaning/myringotomy - This procedure is performed with a video otoscope. It allows us to visualize the ear canal and ear drum at a higher magnification and diagnose ear diseases.

  • Vetscope - This procedure is used with the video otoscope in the exam room to allow the owner to also visualize the dog's ear canal. In many cases, this can be done the same time as the physical exam.

 

Endocrine dermatopathies

  • Advanced blood panels, many containing hormone testing, can diagnose certain skin conditions.

 

Autoimmune skin diseases

  • Skin biopsies may be performed if your animal is suspicious of an autoimmune skin disease.
