Skin diseases are common in dogs and cats and can include problems resulting from:

  • Skin and ear infections
  • Allergies
  • External parasites

If you are unsure about any marks, rashes or irritations you see on your pet, call Flannery Animal Hospital and schedule an appointment today.

Allergy Testing

While pet allergies are not curable, they are treatable and controllable in most pets. Different medications may need to be tried or combinations of medications may need to be administered for maximum comfort.  Depending upon the nature of your pet’s allergy, Flannery Animal Hospital may recommend a hypoallergenic diet, topical or oral medication, or allergy immunotherapy.  If you suspect your pet may have an allergy, call Flannery Animal Hospital and schedule an appointment today.

Some common allergy symptoms include:

In-House Microscopic Cytology

Our In-House Laboratory uses Microscopic Cytology as another extremely useful test to diagnose dermatology issues.  Flannery Animal Hospital performs both ear and skin cytology to aid us in the diagnosis and treatment of allergies as well as other diseases of the skin, ear, mouth, hair and nails.

In-House Fungal Assay

Another common skin issue are fungal infections such as ringworm.  In order to detect the presence of fungi, Flannery Animal Hospital will perform a Fungal Assay.  All that is needed for this test are a few samples of hair.  The controlled environment of our in-house laboratory allows for a more accurate result.
