Skin & Allergy Care

Like people, pets can be sensitive to a wide range of allergens.

While some are sensitive to airborne allergens, food allergies are especially common in pets. Allergies are most prevalent in dogs, but they can affect cats, too. While your allergies likely cause a runny nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing, etc., your pet’s allergies are more likely to manifest as skin issues. 

Here at Center Veterinary Clinic, we provide skin and allergy care for pets in Novato and the surrounding areas. Whether your furry friend has itchy skin, sores, or other problems, we can determine the cause and provide an effective treatment to help them get back to living their best life.

Skin Issues in Pets

Pets suffer from a wide range of skin issues, many of which are caused by allergies. Parasites are also a common culprit. Whether your pet won’t stop scratching, has visible sores or a rash, or is experiencing any other skin-related problem, bring them in right away, so we can determine the cause and correct the problem. 

Allergy Testing and Treatment

Pets who suffer from allergies may experience a wide range of symptoms, including: 
  • Itchy skin
  • Rashes
  • Fur loss
  • Vomiting
  • Hives
  • Diarrhea
They may also experience sneezing, coughing, or watery eyes. 

If we suspect that your furry friend has allergies, we will perform various tests to determine what they are sensitive to. This could be something in their environment or something they’re eating. Once we know what your pet is allergic to, we’ll formulate a treatment plan to manage or eliminate their symptoms. This could include changing your pet’s diet, putting them on a hydrolyzed diet, or administering oral or injectable allergy medications. We will discuss the options with you and help you determine which one is right for your beloved pet.
