Veterinary Dermatology


Dogs and cats, like humans, can suffer from a wide-variety of skin diseases, including diseases of the ear, hair and nails. Left untreated, dermatological conditions in dogs and cats can fester and become serious health concerns or cause your pet to be miserable.

The doctors at West Hills Animal Hospital have the advanced training to diagnose and treat most skin problems that may be affecting your pet, including:

  • Allergies, including food allergies and inhalant allergens
  • Chronic and severe skin and ear disease—bacterial, fungal and viral
  • Immune-mediated and hormonal skin disease
  • Skin manifestations of internal disease
  • Parasitic and infectious skin disease, such as sarcoptic mange and Ringworm
  • Yeast Infections
  • Ear mites
  • Skin cander and tumors
  • Feline skin disorders

Our dermatology service offers specialized diagnostics including:

  • Cytology examination and interpretation
  • Bacterial, fungal, and mycobacterial cultures
  • In-house biopsy services
  • Intradermal allergy testing and hyposensitization therapy

Symptoms of a dermatologic condition in your pet:

  • Excessive or constant licking, chewing, biting, scratching, rubbing and/or shaking their head
  • Lesions or hotspots on the skin
  • Hair loss, scabs, or dandruff
  • Noticeable changes in the skin or hair coat’s color or texture
  • A bad odor from your pet’s skin or ears

If your dog or cat has any of these symptoms, please give us a call and schedule a dermatology appointment today.
