Dermatology

Skin problems are one of the top reasons why owners seek veterinary care for their pets. Despite easy recognition of dermatologic problems, getting these conditions managed or fully resolved can be challenging for even the most experienced veterinary professional. At Friendship Hospital for Animals, our animal dermatology experts are specially trained to identify skin conditions – from the easily treatable to the more complex diseases that require ongoing care. The FHA dermatology team will build a custom treatment plan for your beloved companion.

Our dermatologists are trained to treat a wide variety of skin conditions including:

  • Skin allergies to fleas, food, or environment
  • Excessive itchiness
  • Ear and skin infections
  • Complicated pyoderma including resistant bacterial infections
  • Parasitic infections (fleas, mites)
  • Hair loss and hair disorders
  • Nail disease
  • Auto-immune skin disease
  • Heritable or congenital skin conditions

We can perform intradermal (skin) or serum (blood) allergy testing, formulate allergy vaccine, perform deep ear cleaning, myringotomy, or deep ear flush, collect skin biopsy samples and tissue cultures as needed for each patient.
