Pet Allergies & Skin Care in Chatham, IL

Our Pet Allergies & Skin Care service is designed to provide comprehensive, compassionate, and effective treatment for pets suffering from these issues. Allergies in pets can manifest in various ways, including itching, redness, hair loss, and recurrent ear infections. These symptoms can be caused by a range of allergens, from food ingredients and environmental factors like pollen and dust mites, to flea bites and even certain materials in your home. Our goal is to identify the root cause of your pet’s discomfort and develop a customized treatment plan to address their specific needs.

Diagnosing Pet Allergies

At The Village Veterinarian, we begin with a detailed medical history and a thorough physical examination to identify any obvious signs of allergies or skin issues. This initial assessment helps us gather important information about your pet’s symptoms, their onset, and any potential triggers. We ask questions about your pet’s diet, environment, grooming habits, and previous medical history. This information is critical in guiding our diagnostic approach and identifying potential sources of allergens.

Treating pet allergies and skin conditions effectively requires a multi-faceted approach that addresses both the immediate symptoms and the underlying causes. At The Village Veterinarian in Chatham, IL, we offer a range of treatments tailored to the specific needs of each pet. Depending on the diagnosis, we may recommend dietary changes, medications, topical treatments, and environmental modifications. Our goal is to alleviate your pet’s discomfort, manage their symptoms, and improve their overall quality of life.
