Common signs of allergies in pets include excessive scratching, licking or biting at the skin, recurring ear infections, and hair loss. If you notice these symptoms, it's important to schedule an appointment with a veterinarian experienced in dermatology to determine the cause of your pet's discomfort.

Depending on the underlying cause of your pet's allergies, treatment may include medications, topical treatments, changes in diet or lifestyle, and environmental modifications. For example, if your pet has a food allergy, switching to a hypoallergenic diet may be recommended.

During a dermatology appointment, your veterinarian will conduct a thorough examination of your pet's skin and coat to assess the extent of any skin conditions or allergies. They may also take skin scrapings, hair samples or blood samples to test for parasites, fungus or underlying medical conditions. In some cases, allergy testing may be needed to determine the specific allergen causing your pet's symptoms. Based on their findings, they will recommend a treatment plan tailored to your pet's specific needs. It's important to follow your veterinarian's instructions carefully to ensure that your pet's condition improves and their quality of life is restored.
