Allergy & Dermatology

If you’ve ever suffered from an allergy or other type of skin condition, you understand all too well how uncomfortable and unpleasant it can be. The itchiness. The pain. The way it can interfere with every area of your life.

Did you know that companion animals can suffer from many of the same allergies and skin conditions that we can, and they can also experience the same unpleasant side effects? For pets, just as for humans, skin disorders can have a tremendous impact on quality of life. If your pet is experiencing some type of skin problem, whether it’s just excessive itching or a visible problem with the skin, coat, ears or feet, the team at Ocean Breeze Animal Hospital can help!

Our experienced doctors are skilled at identifying, diagnosing and treating a broad range of dermatological problems. We employ the use of a broad range of diagnostic tools to help us pinpoint the exact cause of the problem, including but not limited to skin cultures, biopsies, laboratory tests, skin scrapings and more. Some of the dermatological problems we can assist with include:

  • Allergies (food, environmental)
  • Skin Infections (bacterial, fungal)
  • Parasites
  • Infections of the Ears
  • Diseases of the Feet
  • Hormonal Disorders
  • Autoimmune Problems
  • Tumors/Growths
  • Skin Cancer

Once we’ve reached a definitive diagnosis, we’ll then work on developing and implementing an appropriate treatment protocol to address and overcome the problem once and for all. We may recommend various treatment options, including the use of topical creams, oral medications, supplements, therapy and surgery, or some combination of these.

We may also suggest making some minor changes at home. In many cases, simply changing your pet’s diet or removing certain items from your home that may be acting as irritants to your pet can reduce or eliminate the problem altogether. We’ll work with you to determine the best, and most effective course of action for your specific pet.

If you believe your pet may be experiencing some type of skin problem, don’t let them suffer another moment in pain or discomfort. Give us a call to schedule a professional dermatological evaluation today. We can help your four-legged friend live a more comfortable life.

      We are a brand new client with this animal hospital. Our dog was exhibiting signs of a UTI are kidney issues. The were prompt ,Coumadin professional. They were able to see us later in the day. The entire staff was kind, courteous and knowledgeable. After listening to me list the signs I had observed. Our dog was given a full examination, and some tests were run. Very confident that we now have two very knowledgeable, compassionate and caring animal hospitals to use. We are “snowbirds “. They came recommended by neighbors, and y Yelp.
      We were very pleased, and grateful to them all. Would highly recommend them to anyone in the area.

      I have only been to their offices once recently and we had to sadly say goodbye to my beloved boy, Jack. The entire staff is so warm and sincere in their care. It meant so much to me that they made Jack comfortable and didn’t rush us at all with our goodbyes. They truly understood how hard it was for our family to lose a loved one. I will 100% be back for the continuous care of our other dog, Lucy. I am truly grateful for all of their kindness.
