It's not a good sight. It's not a good sound. Your dog scratching himself is simply just not a good thing. Do you know what's causing those extra itches? Are you seeing little to no improvement despite trips to your local vet?

Skin issues are in the top 10 health concerns of pet owners. Because of the wide variety of problems (like mites, skin allergies, breed-related genetic problems, hair loss, hormone issues, ear infections), your local vet may not have the experience you need to tackle this one.

Have you ever found yourself wondering, "Are there are any vets near me that specialize in skin problems?"

Yes, there are vets near you who can help!

No worries. A certified veterinary dermatologist is someone who specializes in skin and ear diseases. If your pet has been diagnosed with a unique skin disease, a veterinary dermatologist is the person to see to get it treated. Perhaps your local vet has little experience in dealing with the chronic condition, but specialties can work with you to determine the best course of action.

What course of action?

Intermountain Pet Hospital seeks to not only help improve and heal your pet, but keep away those skin allergies in the future. Skin testing is often used.  

  1. Our Dermatologists  address the symptoms
  2. Our Dermatologists discover the cause of the symptoms

What is skin testing?

Skin testing is a painless procedure. Allergens are inserted into the layers of skin. This will help vets determine which layer of skin is reacting to the allergens.

Are you thinking, "Yes, I want to find those qualified vets near me and bring my pet to a place of comfort again!" Then please contact us today.
