Fighting Bloomfield’s Allergies with Pet Dermatology

Allergies don’t only affect us, they’re common for pets, too! Yet while we suffer from respiratory problems, pets are more likely to develop skin conditions. To relieve their discomfort, our pet dermatology services come to the rescue. We aim to not only treat the symptoms, but address the cause of their allergies, too.

Signs Your Pet May Have an Allergy

Your pet may have an allergy if they exhibit the following symptoms:

  • Dry, flaky skin
  • Red, irritated skin
  • Hair loss
  • Biting/chewing at paws
  • Excessive scratching

Treatment Plans

Pet dermatology treatments, unfortunately, do not cure allergies, but they are often very effective at controlling them. They both ease your pet’s pain and discomfort and can help minimize future allergic reactions. Common treatments include:

  • Immunotherapy/Desensitization based on diagnostic testing
  • Apoquel (allergy medication)
  • Cytopoint (injectable immune therapy)
  • Antihistamines
  • Antibiotics (for infections)
  • Medicated shampoos
  • Topical creams
  • Prescription diets

If you think your pet may be suffering from allergies, schedule an appointment with our veterinarians!


The whole team, from the front desk staff to the groomers, and from the vet techs to the doctors, do a great job with our dog. It's clear they love animals and highly value customer service. Highly recommend.
