Pet Dermatology

Your pet’s fur and skin can reveal a great deal about their health, and can sometimes be indicators of other underlying conditions. Dermatology issues are among the most common reasons pet owners come to Downtown Animal Hospital.

What are the signs of skin problems in dogs/cats/pets?

When it comes to skin-related issues, symptoms can be vast. Your pet may experience minor discomfort at first, and develop more extreme symptoms as their condition progresses. Common indications include itching, dryness, redness, sores, scaling, shedding and hair loss, as well as behaviours such as excessive licking and scratching.

The best thing to do is to schedule an appointment with our team if you ever come across any of these symptoms in your loyal companion, so that we can prevent additional damage in the future. Together we can uncover the facts behind your pet’s fur, and make sure they are as happy and healthy as possible.

To schedule a visit, please give us a call at 613.634.2440.
