Skin and ear care are very common problems that can occur all year round and especially during the hot and allergy season. It is important to keep up with regular bathing and cleaning of both the skin and the ears to help prevent any types of infection occurring. Skin disease or irritation can cause distress. In trying to diagnose and treat skin disorders, your role as a pet owner is essential. Discovering what causes flare-ups and irritation is very important. Pay attention to your pet’s reaction after eating, playing outside, and interacting with other animals. During your appointment, our veterinarian will discuss your observations to determine a series of laboratory tests that will help diagnose or treat your pet’s skin or ear issues.
