Skin problems are a common concern for pet owners. Just like humans, pets can suffer from a variety of conditions that can cause irritation, discomfort, and even infection. The good news is we at Callahan Drive Animal Hospital in Knoxville, TN, are here to help.


When to Get Pet Dermatology Care

Veterinarians are skilled at diagnosing and treating many common pet skin problems. Here are a few types we can help with:

●             Chronic or recurring skin issues

●             Allergies

●             Skin infections

●             Ear infections

●             Dry skin

What to Expect

We have training in diagnosing and treating different types of skin and ear conditions in pets. During a consultation, we will take a detailed history of your pet's health, including any past skin problems, allergies, and medications. We may also perform a thorough physical examination, paying close attention to the skin and ears. Additionally, we may recommend diagnostic tests such as skin scrapings, biopsies, or allergy testing to identify the underlying cause of the problem.

Treatment Options for Pet Skin Conditions

Pet dermatology has different treatment options available for skin and ear conditions. These options may include:

●             Medications: This could include topical ointments, shampoos, oral medications, or injections.

●             Dietary changes: A hypoallergenic diet may be recommended to manage food allergies.

●             Surgery: In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove a growth or treat a severe skin infection.

Importance of Early Diagnosis and Treatment

Early diagnosis and treatment of pet skin conditions can be important for your pet's comfort and well-being. Left untreated, skin problems can become more severe and difficult to manage. Additionally, persistent scratching and licking can lead to secondary skin infections.
