There are a wide variety of ailments that can affect a companion animal’s skin, and the symptoms can range from minor to severe. You don’t want your best friend to suffer and neither do we!
The professional allergy and dermatology services at El Segundo Animal Hospital will help get your loved one as healthy on the outside as on the inside.
To help your pet feel better, we must first identify the precise cause of the problem. We may be able to determine what’s wrong just by examining your pet, or we may need to investigate further. Blood work, skin scrapings and biopsies help us gather the answers we need to move forward with a cure.
