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 board-certified dermatologists 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 patient and work with you for the best outcome.

Our dermatologists are equipped 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

They can perform cytology, intradermal (skin) or serum (blood) allergy testing, deep ear flush, and biopsy sampling for histopathology and tissue culture as needed for each patient.
