Pets can surprise you, and not always in good ways. One minute your dog or cat appears perfectly healthy and happy; the next minute he's chewing or licking a hot spot, rash, welt, or other skin condition. Some of these conditions are not just uncomfortable but also potentially dangerous to your pet's long-term well-being. That's why you want to bring your suffering friend to Casillas Veterinary Hospitals, proud providers of pet dermatology services for Montebello, Lynwood, and East Los Angeles.
Your pet's skin is subject to irritation, injury, or illness from a number of interiors and exterior threats. Conditions that often plague pets include:
Casillas Veterinary Hospitals can get to the root of your pet's skin symptoms and offer safe, effective solutions. Lumps are usually removed just to play it safe (and to run tests on the tissue). Painful, itchy rashes, infections, and hot spots can be treated with soothing topical or oral medications. Flea and tick treatments can rid your pet of another cause of skin irritation. If we suspect an allergy, we will administer testing to isolate the offending allergen and prescribe the proper course of care, from antihistamines to special diets.
Don't let your pet's skin problem get worse and worse -- nip it in the bud at Casillas Veterinary Hospitals. Call our Lynwood office at (323)566-4177, our East LA office at (323)721-2244, and our Montebello office at (323) 726-1525 to schedule the diagnostic testing and skin care your beloved friend needs and deserves!
