Pet Dermatology

Skin problems are common in dogs and cats and can be caused by hormonal disorders, allergies, infections, or parasites such as fleas and mites. These issues can be complicated to treat and should be addressed promptly.

Pet Dermatology Skin

We can often diagnose a skin problem by simply examining your pet. Some dermatologic diseases or conditions do require additional diagnostic procedures to ensure a correct diagnosis. Depending on your pet’s symptoms and the results of our physical exam, we may run blood work, skin scraping, biopsies, or perform a urinalysis. Our Veterinarians in Tampa also offer allergy testing to help pinpoint the cause of your pet’s allergies.

Contact us at 813-289-3925 if you notice your dog or cat scratching excessively or if he or she develops any bare patches, scabs, scaling, redness, inflammation, lumps, or bumps.

Below are some before and after images of one of the most common skin conditions we encounter at our veterinary hospital in Tampa. Pyotraumatic dermatitis (hotspot) is a condition that is linked to allergic skin disease.
