Dermatology

If you’ve ever had a rash, allergic reaction or other type of skin problem, you know how unpleasant an experience it can be – the itchiness, the pain, the annoyance. Our animal companions can suffer from many of the same dermatological problems that we humans do, with many of the same symptoms of pain and discomfort which can ultimately affect their quality of life. If you’ve noticed that your pet has been scratching a lot, biting at a particular area of his or her body, or if you can visibly see a potential problem with your pet’s skin, Vineyard Veterinary Hospital can help. We offer professional pet dermatology services to identify, diagnose and treat a wide variety of skin disorders to help reduce or eliminate the problem once and for all.

Our veterinarians are knowledgeable and experienced in all aspects of pet dermatology and will work diligently to determine exactly what is causing your pet’s skin problem so we can begin an appropriate course of treatment in a timely manner. Depending on the diagnosis, we may treat the problem using a variety of methods, including topical creams, oral medications, supplements or a combination of these. We may also recommend making some changes to your pet’s home environment, such as changing his or her diet and eliminating certain materials from your household. In many cases, just making a few simple changes at home can eliminate the problem altogether.

Some of the dermatological problems that we can provide assistance with include:

  • Allergies
  • Parasite Infections
  • Skin Cancers
  • Infectious Diseases
  • Hormonal Disorders
  • Nail Diseases
  • Ear Infections

We know you work hard to make sure your pet is healthy on the inside, but what about the outside? If you suspect that your pet may be suffering from a problem with his or her skin or ears, don’t wait another moment. Let our experienced doctors get to work developing a solution that will help your pet live a more comfortable life.

      Thank you so much for seeing my boy Chief. Our vets office was closed and my boy needed to be seen immediately. Not only did they fit us in, they stayed late, after closing, to ensure my boy was taken care of and I was put at ease. I can't thank you all enough
