We love our pets and hate to see them in pain or discomfort, and when skin issues become a problem, a vet is the best solution. For those looking for veterinary dermatology care in Riverview, FL, Pavilion Crossing Animal Hospital & Grooming and Dr. Keshava Eega are a great choice.
What is Veterinary Dermatology?
Much like humans have a dermatologist specializing in the skin and caring for the skin and its various ailments, there are also veterinary specialists that care for the skin and the skin health of our pets. This type of professional deals with skin disease, skin disorder, and skin ailments in pets and can help diagnose and treat them quickly and efficiently. While your normal vet can take care of some skin issues, they will not be able to care for all the skin disorders, and if your pet has a serious issue, a specialist maybe your best option.
Why Visit a Veterinary Dermatology Specialist?
A vet dermatologist can handle a huge array of skin issues, from quite simple skin irritation due to an allergy to more serious issues like skin cancer and skin infections. They can treat a vast range of different animals and illnesses, and they can do so with a skill and a level of precision that your vet may not be able to on their own.
Often, a visit to your normal vet first will be the best choice as it does help to rule out common ailments that your vet can handle. With a referral to a skin specialist, you can get the specialized care that your pet needs to manage their skin issues and get back to feeling great. If your pet has scaly skin, itchy skin, inflamed skin, or they have any other skin issue, it is best to see a specialist to get the best care possible.
