Does your pet have an itch that doesn’t seem to go away? At Western Veterinary Center, Medical & Surgical Center (WVC), we understand how unsettling it can be when your pet experiences chronic itching. Our dedicated team specializes in diagnosing and treating a wide range of allergy and dermatology issues to ensure your pet is comfortable and healthy.

Understanding Your Pet's Itching

When your pet's itching becomes a chronic issue, it's time to take notice. Prolonged itching may lead to bald spots, and consistent licking or chewing may signal that something is wrong. We encourage pet owners to bring these symptoms to their veterinarian's attention as soon as possible to prevent chronic skin damage.

Determining the Underlying Cause

Determining the root cause of your pet's itching involves looking at various aspects of their lifestyle. Are they on regular flea control? What type of diet are they on? These factors play a crucial role in diagnosing and treating your pet's condition. Furthermore, many dermatological diseases can stem from other underlying conditions, and we may conduct a general workup to understand the situation thoroughly.
