Santa Monica Pet Allergies

Skin, Ears, & Allergies 

Allergies are a common ailment for humans, but did you know that pets can also suffer from allergies? At our animal hospital in Westside LA, pet allergies are a common concern that we often address with our patients. Symptoms of allergies in animals will be very different from symptoms in humans. When your pet has allergies, you may notice the following symptoms:

  • Bald patches
  • Frequent ear infections
  • Hair loss
  • Hot spots
  • Itchy or sensitive ears
  • Itchy skin
  • Rashes
  • Sores
  • …and more

We provide a range of veterinary diagnostic tools to help us identify the cause of your pet’s allergy symptoms. Pets may be allergic to a variety of things, from protein sources in their foods to dust, fleas, and even human dander. We can offer full allergy testing services and ensure that your pet’s needs are met. While allergies aren’t curable, they are controllable. We have the tools to help you provide the treatments needed to provide relief to your best friend.

Most pet owners don’t realize that poor-quality food is the #1 cause of skin conditions in dogs! Our team can help identify allergic reactions to food and get your pet on a diet that is better suited to their needs.
