Pet Allergies/Dermatology Services in Nashua
Did you know pets can have allergies, just like people can? If your pet’s been itching and scratching a lot lately, or if you’ve noticed bald or red spots on his skin, your pet might have an allergy. All Pets Veterinary Hospital wants your companion to live a comfortable, allergy-free life, which is why we offer pet dermatology services here in Nashua. With these services, we can diagnose and treat a wide range of skin conditions, including allergies, bacterial infections, lick granulomas, and hot spots.
Before we can effectively treat your pet’s skin condition, we need to first obtain an accurate diagnosis and determine the cause of the condition. A typical pet dermatology visit at our Nashua animal hospital involves a discussion with you about your pet’s symptoms, followed by a thorough examination. If necessary, we can perform a diagnostic test, including skin scraping, culture, and biopsy.
Depending on our findings, we’ll develop a treatment plan to meet your pet’s specific needs, whether it involves supplements, using a medicated shampoo, or taking medication. For hard-to-manage allergy cases, we also offer Advanced Allergy Therapeutics.
Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT)
AAT is a treatment option that involves the study of allergens, and it’s been clinically proven to relieve various symptoms associated with skin sensitivities and allergies. This treatment cannot diagnose or cure an allergy, but it CAN provide long-term relief from symptoms by determining the possible causes of stress on the body. Some of the conditions that AAT can treat are:
- Chronic ear infections
- Chronic vomiting
