Berkeley Dog & Cat Hospital’s experienced dermatologist resolves chronic skin and ear problems and provides allergy testing and injections. Ongoing treatments and follow-up care ensure that your pet maintains a healthy skin and coat. Our dermatologist has conducted extensive research in nutrition and understands how a pet’s diet impacts dermatologic health.
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 particularly difficult to treat and should be addressed promptly.
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 or perform a urinalysis, skin scraping, or biopsies.
