Skin problems are the second most common reason for a trip to the vet. Ireland is full of fleas, ticks, mites, pollen, and grasses. Bacterial and yeast infections, food allergies and endocrine diseases (thyroid or Cushing’s disease) are also reasons for skin problems in your pet. Often times there are simple solutions to managing your pet’s skin problems, and sometimes further diagnostic tests are needed (skin scrapings, cytology/microscopic exam, culture and sensitivities, biopsy/histopathology, blood testing). We offer a full range of therapies for most types of skin problems, and can help guide you and your pet through the treatment plan.
