About the importance of well-groomed skin
If your pet often scratches and has redness on the skin, it may be due to an allergic reaction, due to food, medicine or another chemical element, or due to an invasion by parasites – fleas, ticks, hair eaters or fungal infections – ringworm.
We are extremely interested in dermatology and are methodical in the way we approach the diagnosis and treatment of your pet’s skin condition.
We develop programs for the specific needs of your pet in its specific environmental situation and we have shampoos and other products to keep the skin healthy at home.
Call us if you suspect your pet has an allergy or other skin condition.
How allergic reactions occur
FAD (Flee Allergic Disease) is a common allergic reaction after flea bites, due to the inability of some pets to have a specific protein found in flea saliva.
Due to our climate, pets are exposed to environmental allergens such as pollen, grass, mold spores, and mites all year round.
Environmental allergies often come in the form of atopic dermatitis – a skin condition that will look like red, inflamed skin, especially noticeable in your pet’s ears, snout, and around the eyes.
Surprisingly, food allergies can also cause itching in your pet. They can also cause an upset stomach and even cause ear infections.
Beef and chicken by-products, dairy products, soy, wheat, and corn are common food allergens.
Then there are fungal infections such as ringworm, for which rapid treatment is vital to prevent it from spreading to humans. Ringworm presents as round, bald skin lesions.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are you accepting new patients?
What causes dermatological problems in pets?
Pets can develop irritated, dry, red, or itchy skin from allergic reactions to certain substances in the environment, such as chemicals in cleaning products.
Others may have skin problems due to a reaction to the ingredients in their food.
Some pets end up with skin problems due to an underlying disease or condition that requires diagnosis and treatment, while others may have skin problems from fleas.
Flea bites can cause itching in dogs and cats with allergies, which increases the risk of a bacterial skin infection if they are frequently scratched.
My pet shows no problems. Do I have to visit the vet anyway?
Yes. Many of these skin conditions begin asymptomatically. Planning and attending an annual veterinary check-up will help detect these dermatological problems early.
