Skin or allergy issues are a common reason for scheduling appointments with our veterinarians. Constant itchiness and the presence of lumps can have various causes, but rest assured, we are here to provide the help your pet needs.
Lumps and Bumps
Discovering an unfamiliar lump on your beloved pet can be distressing, but many of these masses are benign and easily treatable. Our animal care specialists will take a sample of the cells and send it to our laboratory for precise identification. Once we have the information, we can determine the appropriate method of removal.
Most lumps turn out to be harmless skin tags, warts, or cysts, which can be easily removed. If the mass is cancerous, the treatment process will be more involved and and we'll discuss the best course of action for treatment.
While fleas and mites can cause itchiness, the most common reason for persistent scratching in pets is allergies. Whether it's an allergic reaction to food, medication, environmental factors like animal dander or pollens, or contact with unfamiliar substances, animals often suffer from allergic reactions.
The good news is that itchiness is often easily treatable. Effective lotions, prescription shampoos, and dietary changes have proven successful in many cases. Our experienced veterinarians will determine the most suitable approach to get your pet back to a happy and healthy state.
