Veterinary Dermatology in Rancho Cucamonga
While it is important for any pet to have a good veterinarian in Rancho Cucamonga, special care needs to be taken when it comes to pets who have specific health concerns, such as skin allergies and related problems. At Day Creek Animal Hospital in Rancho Cucamonga, we offer dermatology services and are able to treat skin problems in dogs and other pets.
There’s Dermatology for Pets Too?
If your pet suffers from allergies, or has a history of rashes or external parasites it is especially important that you take pet dermatology in Rancho Cucamonga seriously, and that you find a vet that is focused on pet skin care. At Day Creek Animal Hospital, our vet in Rancho Cucamonga is skilled in veterinary dermatology issues and is able to properly diagnose a number of pet skin disorders based on skin lesions, sores, and skin textures and patterns to either find the appropriate way to treat skin problems in dogs or other animals or to use more extensive tools to discover more serious problems such as a malignancy. To do this, our veterinarian in Rancho Cucamonga CA can perform a number of procedures including skin scraping, skin biopsy, skin testing, skin cytology, and skin and ear cultures. In addition to the main skin areas, veterinary dermatology also pays close attention to a pet's nails, ears, as well as their hair or fur.
Does Your Pet Need Veterinary Skin Care?
