Skin disease is one of the most common problems affecting our pets. While there are many diseases that affect the skin specifically, there are almost as many metabolic diseases where the skin is secondary to the primary problem. If this sounds confusing, you are not alone. Skin conditions are often the most frustrating and time consuming of all the diseases that afflict our pets. At Abbotsford Animal Hospital we take the guess work out of skin disease.
We take a very systematic approach to skin disease. We will take a detailed history and perform a thorough physical exam. We have the in house lab tests that provide further detailed information that will allow us to make an accurate initial evaluation of your pet. We have the experience to know when to dig deeper rather than take the attitude of “take some pills and it will get better.”
By utilising our experience, in house cytology, lab work, cultures and histopathology, we can work to get to the root of the problem. But that is only the beginning. We will take the time to explain what the issue is and come up with a comprehensive plan that works for you and your pet. We believe that communication is an essential part of any treatment plan. An informed pet owner can provide the best care for their pet.
We are available seven days a week for consultations, second opinions and referrals.
