We at Indian Creek Pet Hospital will make sure to work with you and your pet to determine if there are any dermatological problems that need to be addressed. Symptoms that your dog or cat has a skin issue include:

  • Recurrent ear infections
  • Constant licking, chewing, biting, scratching, rubbing, and/or shaking of the head
  • Hair loss, scabs, or dandruff
  • Rash or hot spot
  • Change in the skin or coat’s color or texture
  • Bad odor coming from your pet’s ears or skin

Most of these symptoms point to an underlying medical issue. The veterinarians at Indian Creek Pet Hospital are trained to diagnose and treat dermatological problems as well as identify the contributing factors that may have led to the problem, to begin with.

During the exam, we will review your pet’s medical history, lab reports and perform a complete physical exam of your pet. We may recommend further diagnostic testing, such as a skin biopsy, skin allergy testing, or other testing, such as bloodwork, to identify the cause of your pet’s dermatology problem. We will discuss treatment options with you once we have diagnosed the underlying cause of your pet’s skin or ear condition.

Please call us at (239) 466-5555 as soon as you notice your pet is having a skin or ear problem.
