Skin problems and ear infections are two of the most frustrating chronic conditions that our doctors treat. For many pets, the constant scratching, hot spots, and ear infections are secondary to an underlying allergy, either to substances in the environment or to ingredients in food. It is important to determine if an allergy is present, or the skin and ear infections will continue to flare up. Our doctors offer blood testing and desensitization injections for environmental allergies. They also are happy to discuss the food trial process to determine if food allergies are present. While the diagnostic process is happening, the doctors will focus on immediate relief for your pet while minimizing side effects of medications.
