CONTINUITY OF DERMATOLOGY CARE FOR PATIENTS, WITH PUBLIC HEALTH & WELLNESS - AN UPDATE
Pets with atopy (atopic dermatitis) often benefit from Allergen Specific Immunotherapy (ASIT) – administered as oral drops or allergy injections. This is a process in which allergens are administered to an allergic pet in small amounts, which helps build up a tolerance to allergies.
We offer intra-dermal allergy testing, the gold standard in diagnosing environmental allergies. The testing helps identify outdoor and indoor allergens causing cat and dog allergies, including grass and tree pollen, environmental moulds, and house dust mites.
Ear Care for Pets
Pet dermatologists are specialists in treating ear conditions in dogs and cats. Video-otoscopic evaluations help determine the cause for ear conditions in pets, by aiding in assessment of the external ear canal, ear drums, and the middle ear.
Non-Allergic Skin and Ear Problems
Skin diseases include more than allergic skin disease alone. Bacterial and fungal infection, nail conditions, hair loss, skin tumours, autoimmune skin disorders may be some other causes of skin discomfort for a pet. A vet dermatologist possesses expertise in differentiating and treating these various skin and ear problems.
Rush immunotherapy is a safe alternative to the traditional allergy immunotherapy build-up. It helps with keeping your pet’s allergy desensitization plan straightforward (no need for pet owners to assess allergic flares and make dosing decisions) and may help improve the rate of efficacy of allergy immunotherapy in pets.
Online dermatology consultations for allergy, ears, and skin conditions in pets are available from VetDERM Clinic. Consult online with our board-certified vet skin and ear specialist and receive valuable advice for managing your pet’s condition.
