Allergy & Dermatology Testing

Allergies and dermatological issues can make your pet feel miserable, irritated, and uncomfortable without treatment. Our highly experienced team at Rea Road Animal Hospital is clinically trained in the diagnosis of dermatological conditions that may affect your pets’ coat, skin, ears, eyes, and feet. Unfortunately, many chronic issues require long-term treatment, therefore having a communicative and comfortable relationship with your veterinarian is important.

Our goal is to accurately diagnose the allergen or dermatological issue, and provide relief to your pet. We must first find the cause of irritation by conducting a physical exam on the pet. In addition, we may need more information from the owner, allergy tests, blood tests, or a combination of these options.

Some signs that may indicate your pet is suffering from a dermatological condition include:

  • Biting or licking the skin
  • Regular itching and scratching
  • Red or watery eyes
  • Unusual irritability or aggression
  • Flaking skin or rashes
  • Seeking more or less human attention than normal

One of the most common dermatological conditions that pets may face are allergies. Our clinical team is expertly trained in administering allergy tests in order to diagnose and provide relief to pets. An allergy test entails shaving an area of the pets’ body and carefully exposing the skin to certain allergens in order to determine their effect. This will help our team better understand the condition, and will allow us to administer appropriate treatment.
