We Take Care of Itchy Skin!

Pets can suffer from a wide variety of skin problems, many of which can appear to have very similar symptoms. It’s important to bring your pet to your veterinarian whenever you notice discomfort so that he or she can accurately diagnose the cause of the problem and suggest solutions to make your pet more comfortable.

Skin disorders may be the result of an infectious or non-infectious disease, parasitic infestation, or allergic reaction. At Edmonds Veterinary Hospital, we are able to manage many different skin ailments, but also work with local area dermatology specialists for cases that require more complex diagnosis and treatment.
