Allergies Are the Main Cause
Pets suffer from allergies just like humans. Some of these allergies are seasonal. There are several medications available to help your pet avoid seasonal allergies. We can also provide you with some ideas on how to avoid encountering these seasonal allergens.
Food allergies also cause pet skin and ear infections. Many pet foods use filler ingredients, such as grain, wheat, soy, and other products that do not add nutritional value to your pet's food. Pets can be allergic to these filler ingredients. Other pets suffer from allergies to certain kinds of proteins. For example, some pets are allergic to chicken. If you suspect your pet’s issues are being caused by allergies, our veterinarian will identify and address whatever your pet is allergic to.
Other times, your pet may be coming into contact with something in their environment that is causing them to experience skin and ear infections. We will identify whatever is irritating your pet’s skin and help you avoid it in the future.
