Skin conditions are very common in pets, and can make both you and your furry family member miserable! Allergies can occur due to a number of reasons ranging from flea allergies, certain foods and contact with a substance that causes a reaction in your pet.
It is important to determine the underlying cause of an allergic condition in order to properly treat the condition. Flea allergies are usually the easiest to determine, and if this is the cause, prescribe a flea preventative that is right for the pet. Food and contact allergies are often more challenging, and may require a number of tests to locate the cause.
