Allergies & Dermatology

Is your pet’s itchy skin keeping you both up at night?

There are a wide variety of ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can be downright unpleasant. You don’t want your best friend to suffer and neither do we! 

The professional allergy and dermatology services Murrieta Family Pet Hospital are designed to help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.

Diagnosing the Problem

To help your pet feel better, we’ll start by identifying the cause of the problem. We may be able to determine what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies enable us to get the answers we need to move forward with a cure.

Some common dermatological issues we assist with include:

  • Allergies (food and/or environmental)
  • Infections (acute or chronic)
  • Parasites
  • Dermatitis
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Tumors
  • Skin cancer

Developing a Treatment Plan

Once we’ve identified the problem, the next step is deciding how to best treat it. Depending on the circumstances, we may recommend something as simple as applying a topical cream. More complex situations may call for a longer-term strategy or involve a combination of treatment methods. 

Signs of a possible skin problem include:

  • Excessive scratching
  • Scabbing or flaking of the skin
  • Hot spots
  • Shedding more than usual
  • Biting, chewing or licking at the affected area
  • Bumps or lumps on or under the skin

If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to book an appointment. Contact Murrieta Family Pet Hospital today. We can help your loved one live a more comfortable life.

Dr. Telles and her staff genuinely care about their patients. I love that they are not intimidated by my German Shepherd (Maggie) and they're very understanding when my dog gets aggressive out of fear of vaccinations or blood draws. I'm always impressed watching the team hard at work whenever my dog and I are there for a visit.
