Pets at this specialty clinic are provided with full assessments to determine the underlying causes of issues affecting the skin and recommend modern, effective treatments. Common signs of dermatological issues include excessive biting, scratching, head shaking, dandruff and hair loss. Additionally, pet owners may observe a change in the condition of their pet’s skin, scabbing, non-healing wounds or bad odors.
