Dr. Ben and Dr. Coll maintain a special focus on diagnosing, managing and treating a broad range of pet skin conditions. Here at Companion Animal Clinic, we can often detect and treat other veterinary conditions that may be affecting your pets based on findings from your pets skin condition. 

Allergy Management for Your Pet

Companion Animal Clinic provides veterinary dermatology services for your dogs and cats. Proper pet skin and coat care are an important component to your pet’s health. Your pet’s wellness exam includes a pet dermatological assessment, and we will make recommendations to treat or maintain your pet’s coat and skin. Dermatological conditions can be caused by many factors, including:

  • Allergies (Environmental, Food, etc)

  • Ectoparasites (Fleas, Scabies, Demodex, etc)

  • Hormonal or metabolic imbalances

  • Ticks

  • Fungal infections (ringworm, yeast, etc)

  • Auto –immune illness

Pet skin care is important for the health and safety of your entire family. In some cases, the source of your pet’s dermatological condition can also be transferred to your other pets or human family members. Proper diagnosis and treatment are vital to keeping you, your family, and your pet safe and healthy.
