Possible Skin Problems in Pets
Bring your pet to Arroyo Animal Clinic!
Have you noticed your pet excessively itching, chewing, or licking their fur? They may be suffering from a skin problem and you may wish to bring them to our Santa Clara veterinary clinic to ensure they are healthy. While some animals lick their fur out of sheer boredom, many animals lick, scratch, and/or bite their skin when they are suffering from a skin problem. There are various skin conditions a pet may have:
- Food Allergies
- Skin Infections
- Sarcoptic Mange
Our vets can perform different tests to determine the cause of your pet's skin irritation-such as biopsies, testing for ringworm, allergy testing, blood tests, and examining their hair/skin under a microscope to see if there are any parasites or infections. If you believe your animal has a skin problem, please bring them to our Sunnyvale veterinary office. You may call our office at (408) 241-4450 to schedule an appointment!
