A common issue with many pets in the Fayetteville area of North Carolina is allergies and skin conditions related to allergies. The experienced staff at Reilly Road Animal Hospital are extremely efficient in diagnosing and treating skin conditions in both dogs and cats. There are many reasons for allergic reactions in our furry family members, including food allergies, flea allergy dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, and contact allergens such as grass or pollen. Regardless of the underlying cause of the itching and scratching, Dr. Stephenson at Reilly Road Animal Hospital can help your precious pet!
Treatment of dermatological issues in animals has improved considerably over recent years, and Dr. Stephenson at Reilly Road Animal Hospital treat these cases in the safest, most efficient manner available in veterinary medicine. In the past, bathing, topical creams, steroids, and antihistamines were the only products available for treatment of skin issues in pets. Fortunately, veterinary medicine has evolved significantly over the last several years, and new treatments such as sublingual immunotherapy and new oral and injectable medications have made allergic conditions in pets much more manageable and safer to control. Oral, sublingual immunotherapy involves placing small amounts of allergens in the mouth of the pet to build up resistance when they encounter this particular substance. New oral and injectable allergy medications are also available at Reilly Road Animal Hospital; it is extremely safe and effective for both short and long-term use.
If your pet has itching that goes beyond normal scratching, they may be suffering from allergies. Set an appointment at Reilly Road Animal Hospital by calling 910-864-0606, and put an end to the discomfort associated with allergic skin conditions in your furry family member.
