Dog and Cat Allergy Treatments in Greenwood
The veterinary team at Vista Hills Animal Hospital in greater Indianapolis treats many pets who suffer from allergy problems and skin conditions. While allergies in humans often manifest themselves in cold-like symptoms, allergies in animals manifest themselves in the form of skin rashes, itchiness, ear infections, and more. Signs of allergies in pets include:
- Ear infections
- Excessive itchiness
- Oozing scratches
- Red patches of skin, called hot spots
- ...and more
Pets may experience allergies to ingredients in the food that they eat, environmental allergens, and more. Identification and allergy treatment often involves advanced trials to ensure that we are doing more than treating symptoms. We make it our goal to identify causes and eliminate allergy triggers entirely, when possible. Yet, oftentimes, allergens cannot be avoided entirely. Therefore, we'll use medications to help keep your pet comfortable. Common treatments we use include Cytopoint (an injectable that controls the itch for up to 8 weeks) and Apoquel (an oral tablet).
Our veterinary team is educated and skilled to provide exceptional diagnostic care to the pets of the Indianapolis area. We work closely with pet owners to ensure that we have all of the information we need for a thorough diagnosis. Our team takes great pride in working on and treating allergy cases that are often difficult to diagnose, treating them with the skill of veterinary and dermatological specialists in the industry.
