What are the causes, symptoms & diagnosis of bacterial skin infections?
Bacterial skin infections are the most common skin disease in dogs. These infections are typically secondary to an underlying cause, with allergies and hormonal disease being the two most common.
What are the causes, symptoms, and treatment for ringworms?
Ringworm is caused by a fungus. Lesions usually include areas of circular hair loss and scaling. Ringworm occurs commonly in dogs with the highest incidences in puppies and immunocompromised animals. Once we have obtained positive diagnoses from the laboratory, the treatment will vary based on the severity of the disease.
What are the causes and treatment of allergic skin diseases?
Allergic skin disease can be caused by inhaled allergens or cutaneously absorbed environmental allergens, food sensitivities, or a combination of the two. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. To treat and diagnose allergic skin disease includes the process of elimination, such as food trials or medication. Therapy will vary based on your dog’s individual sensitivities.
What are the causes and treatment for parasitic skin diseases?
Parasitic skin infections can be caused by lice, fleas or mites. Treatment will vary based on the type of parasite and may include oral and or topical medications.
What are the causes and treatment for hormonal skin diseases?
Hormonal skin disease is caused by illnesses such as hypothyroidism or Cushing’s disease. These diseases are diagnosed through blood testing. If your dog is positive for a hormonal disease, an individual treatment plan will be put in place by one of our veterinarians.
