When you bring a pet into your home, you want to ensure that you provide appropriate care in different situations. At the Alta Rancho Pet & Bird Hospital, we provide appropriate dermatology treatments for dogs, cats, birds and reptiles. Depending on the needs of your pet, veterinarians in an animal hospital provide appropriate tools to address the underlying skin concerns that develop from different situations.
Identifying External Parasites
External parasites that infect and harm the health of pocket pets, dogs, cats or any other animal you bring into your home raise concerns about the long-term health of your pets. At our clinic, we offer treatments in Rancho Cucamonga that identify common external parasites that cause a reaction on the skin of your pets. For example, we identify fleas, ticks, maggots or other parasites that harm pets from the outside.
Allergy Testing and Treatment
Allergies cause a reaction on the skin of your pets and cause concerns about the well-being of a pet. Allergies that impact the health of your pets cause a rash, itchy skin and swelling that requires appropriate treatment to address the situation. Depending on the symptoms, veterinarians offer different treatment solutions to address the allergic reaction and encourage the healing process.
Diagnosis Skin Cancer
Skin cancer impacts the health of pets in a sever and potentially deadly way. Cancer is a problem that spreads over time and requires immediate treatment when you notice something odd about your pets. Ideally, you want to point out any potential concerns when you visit our clinic so that we can evaluate potential sources of cancer. Our diagnostic services focus on identifying cancer in the early stages so that we provide appropriate treatment before it spreads to other areas of the body.
Ringworm is a common problem in Rancho Cucamonga that impacts the health of pets and individuals. Generally, you will notice an odd round shape, or a ring, under the fur or skin of your pets. At our clinic, we look for signs of ringworm that an owner can overlook during a routine exam and check-up, so you can feel confident that your pets have appropriate care when you seek treatment. By treating the parasite with appropriate medication, it kills the worm and provides an opportunity for your pets to heal from the parasite.
Recognizing Ear Infections
Ear infections harm dogs, cats and other pets, so you want to seek treatment for any signs of an ear infection. Generally, you will notice that your pets scratch or bite their ears. The ears also swell or develop redness that was not present previously. You will also notice odd odors and may see some discharge from the ears of your pets when an infection develops. Hair loss around the ears can also develop from an infection. Seek treatment as early as possible to ensure that your dog or cat does not develop more severe health concerns. In some cases, an ear infection causes hearing loss or similar health concerns.
