Dog and Cat Allergy Treatments in Bloomfield Hills

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 dog and cat allergy treatments come to the rescue. We aim to not only treat the symptoms, but address the cause of their allergies, too.

  • Excessive scratching

Dog and Cat Allergy 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 dog and cat allergy 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!
