We see all kinds of health issues in pets here in the South, but skin diseases, allergies, and fleas are the most prevalent. If your dog or cat is scratching and licking at themselves to the point of hair loss, they’re likely suffering from itchy skin brought on by an allergy, parasite, or fungal infection. These problems can sometimes be connected, and are often stubborn to treat. Fortunately, we can offer solutions to relieve your pet from their discomfort and give them a chance to heal. With time and patience, you can expect a significant improvement in your pet’s health and quality of life.
