Diagnosis can be made by skin scraping, culture, and blood testing. Treatment may consist of medicated shampoo, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs, special diets, and immunotherapy. Herbal products and acupuncture can be integrated into the treatment to reduce recurrence. Many have found relief despite previous failed treatments. These conditions affect the quality of life of your pet. Let us help them.
