Veterinary Dermatology

for a Healthier, Happier Pet

Itchy rashes don’t have to be a fact of life for your pet! Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic’s veterinarians and staff provide a full range of high quality veterinary services, including allergy testing and veterinary dermatology, to get to the bottom of your pet’s skin disorders.

Pet Allergy Testing

If your dog or cat is spending a lot of time scratching or licking its skin, it could be a sign that your pet has allergies. Scratching can lead to sores, pain, and anxiety for your pet. An allergy test can save your pet–and you!–hours of pain and annoyance. Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic can get to the root of your pet’s itching with allergy testing.

Environmental Allergies

Environmental allergies include allergies to pollen, molds, and even animal dander. Our veterinarians test to determine the root cause of your pet’s allergies. If we find that your dog or cat is allergic to airborne substances, we can counsel you on the best ways to eliminate the source of allergens from your home and suggest the most effective therapy including medications, nutrition, and shampoos.

Food Allergies

If your dog or cat suffers from digestive problems such as diarrhea, it might be a sign that your pet is allergic to something in his or her food. Our veterinarians can monitor food trials to determine which ingredients your pet is allergic to and prescribe hypoallergenic food and treats.

Flea Bite Allergies

Dogs and cats can be allergic to the saliva of fleas. This is known as flea bite hypersensitivity and can lead to skin infections and “hot spots.” The best way to deal with flea bite hypersensitivity is to eliminate fleas or prevent fleas from entering your home. If, after a full examination, our veterinarians detect fleas on your pet, or if you’ve noticed these insects in your house, we counsel you as to the best medications and insecticides that are safe for both your pet and your family.
