If you find that your pet spends the majority of its time biting or scratching its skin, this may indicate that your animal has skin allergies, including food allergies, environmental allergies, or an allergic reaction to flea bites. Don’t let your pet suffer any longer. Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic veterinarians and staff are experts in animal allergy testing and veterinary dermatology.
Food allergies can result in digestive problems such as diarrhea. If your pet is having digestive issues, be sure to call us for an appointment today. At your animal’s appointment, our veterinarians determine your pet’s food allergy and prescribe hypoallergenic food such as Hill’s Science Diet Prescription Diets to best meet your dog or cat’s needs.
Environmental allergies are allergies to airborne substances such as molds, pollen, and even animal dander. Our veterinarians determine the cause of your pet’s allergies and counsel you on how to eliminate these allergens from your home. We also recommend the latest nutrition, medications, and animal shampoos.
Also known as “flea bite hypersensitivity,” flea bite allergy is an allergic reaction to flea saliva and can lead to canine skin infections called “hot spots.” Our veterinarians help you eliminate fleas and prevent these pests from entering your home. If we detect fleas on your dog or if fleas have infested your home, our veterinarians recommend the most effective and safest parasiticides and medications.
