Are any of these familiar activities for your dog or cat: scratching, chewing, licking, or head shaking?
These are just some of the signs that an animal with skin disease can exhibit. Eventually you may also notice red, irritated skin, scabbing, or inflamed, itchy or smelly ears.

PET SKIN ALLERGY EXAM
In many cases skin issues are chronic conditions that require ongoing treatment. Our Cheyenne veterinarians always start by getting a thorough history from you, followed by a comprehensive physical examination to help determine an individualized diagnostic and treatment plan.

Our goal at Avenues Pet Clinic is to always determine the underlying cause and provide treatment that will bring both immediate relief and a long-term solution for these often chronic conditions. New medications and therapies have revolutionized the management of allergic skin disease, particular in dogs, and those therapies are available at Avenues Pet Clinic in Cheyenne, WY.
