We Offer Allergy Testing

When it comes to allergies, knowing exactly what's causing your pet's discomfort is half the battle. We're proud to offer HESKA blood allergy testing right here in our clinic. This advanced testing allows us to pinpoint the specific environmental allergens (such as pollen or mold) that are affecting your pet.

Treatment Options for Itchy Skin

Seeing your dog or cat constantly scratching can be disheartening, but relief is possible. We provide effective solutions for itchy skin, including Apoquel and Cytopoint. These treatments are designed to soothe your pet's skin, reduce inflammation, and alleviate the urge to scratch, giving them much-needed relief.

Comprehensive Care for Skin and Ear Conditions

Allergies can lead to a variety of skin and ear conditions, including infections that can cause discomfort and even pain. Our clinic is equipped to manage these conditions with:

  • Ear Cytology: By examining ear samples from your pet under a microscope, we can identify the exact cause of the problem and make informed treatment decisions.
  • Skin Scrapes and Cytology: These diagnostic tools help us uncover underlying skin conditions, from mites to fungal infections.
  • Soothing Shampoos, Ointments, and Creams: Our topical treatments are carefully selected to soothe your pet's skin and enhance healing to prevent future infections.
  • Medications and Special Diets: Sometimes, the key to alleviating allergies lies in your pet's diet. We offer prescription medications and special food formulations designed to reduce allergic reactions and improve skin health.

If you've noticed your pet scratching more than usual or if they're showing signs of skin or ear discomfort, don't wait. Contact us today at (406) 542-3838 to schedule a consultation, or book online.
