Allergy Treatments at Our Vet Clinic in Milpitas

Allergies are quite common in dogs of all breeds and backgrounds, typically due to fleas, but can also be the result of food or inhaled irritants like dust or pollen. Using the latest in veterinary medicine, we can diagnose and treat a range of pet allergies with the goal of providing long-term relief for your pet.

Symptoms of Allergies

It is important to be able to identify the first signs and symptoms of allergies and dermatological conditions. These include:

  • Scratching, licking, chewing or biting the skin, feet and ears
  • Red, raised, scaly areas on the skin
  • Bumps, crusts or pus-filled vesicles on the skin
  • Increased skin pigmentation
  • Thickened skin
  • Loss of hair
  • Salivary staining (brown color)
  • Head shaking

Allergic reactions and skin conditions can become serious medical concerns if left untreated. If your pet exhibits any of the symptoms above, please make an appointment to be seen by our experienced medical team as soon as possible. We will evaluate your pet, determine the most effective method of treatment and explain how you can prevent future problems. Call us today at 408-956-8061.
