One of the more common reasons people bring their pets to Appalachian Animal Clinic is for skin conditions, often caused by allergies. Animals can be extremely uncomfortable when they are suffering from dermatological issues and should be treated by a veterinarian. Allergic skin reactions can be caused by fleas, food and contact allergens such as grass or pollen. The veterinarians at Appalachian have many years of successful treatment of pets with skin issues, and they will bring that experience and compassion to your pet as well. Don’t let your pet suffer with skin conditions; call the team at Appalachian Animal Clinic today.
Appalachian Animal Clinic is excited to offer treatment for those animals who suffer from moderate to severe allergies that cause discomfort and pain to the pet. If you notice that your pet constantly bites itself, scratches and whimpers while scratching then you should call our hospital to set up an appointment. It is most likely that your pet is suffering from an allergy. There are several types of allergies our pets have including: flea allergies, food allergies and environmental allergies. Our doctors are well versed in treating these issues using not only medicine but also appropriate food choices and even medicated baths.
Appalachian Animal Clinic takes their treatment options one step further by offering allergen specific immunotherapy. This is a treatment program where your pet is injected with small doses of the allergen they are having issues with and it is given over time in larger doses to keep the allergen from affecting the pet everyday. This is not a cure but rather an ongoing treatment program.
If you are interested in immunotherapy options for your pet please call Appalachian Animal Clinic schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians.
