Understanding Pet Dermatology

Skin problems can be common for pets and manifest in various ways, including itching, redness, hair loss, and skin lesions. These issues can be caused by various factors, including allergies, infections, parasites, and skin cancer. Our veterinarians are trained to diagnose and treat a wide range of skin conditions in pets, helping to alleviate discomfort and improve quality of life.

When you bring your pet to Huntington Beach Veterinary Hospital for dermatology care, our veterinarians will perform a thorough examination to assess your pet’s skin condition. We may recommend additional diagnostic tests, such as skin scrapings, blood tests, or allergy testing, to determine the underlying cause of the issue.
