Because of Georgia's unique environment, it is not uncommon for pets to develop allergies just like us. However, allergies in dogs often present as skin issues like excessive itchiness or licking/chewing at paws. While allergies can be a lifelong issue for our pets, there are diagnostic options available to determine what your pet is allergic to and treatment options to manage allergies and flare up issues.
Skin issues can be caused from a variety of things from bacterial infections to allergies to ringworm. We believe in treating the underlying cause and not just the symptoms of your pet's skin issues. A thorough examination with complete history and diagnostic testing will help the veterinarian diagnose the cause of your pet's skin issue and determine the best course of treatments.
