One of the more common disorders that we see at Ramey Veterinary Hospital are skin ailments. There are many different types of skin disorders that have many different causes, and all of them can be physically and mentally stressful for your pets. We provide dermatology services that include an in-depth evaluation of your pet’s condition, followed by testing, diagnosis, and treatment plans.

There are a number of tell tale signs that will help you recognize if your pet has a skin disorder including:

  • • Excessive licking, chewing, or scratching of the tail and hindquarters, or the face, feet and ears
  • • Discoloration or redness of the skin
  • • Sensitivity to touch
  • • Dry, oily, or flaky skin
  • • Lumps underneath or on your pet’s skin
  • • Skin sores
  • • A bad odor coming from your pet’s skin
  • • Patchy hair loss, or a dull and dry looking coat

Identifying the root cause of the skin disease is most important for determining the best course for treatment. Our dermatology services treat pets suffering from dermatitis, parasite infections, allergies, and more. Based on your pet’s diagnosis, we may recommend one or a combination of the following:

  • • Soothing Medicinal Baths
  • • Allergy Testing
  • • Flea Control
  • • Hot Spot Treatments
  • • Food Trials

If your pet is showing signs of a skin disorder, it’s important to schedule a visit at Ramey Veterinary Hospital. The sooner we can assess your pet’s condition and make a diagnosis, the sooner your pet can feel relief. Our service area includes the communities of Tuscaloosa as well as Moundville, Taylorville, Holt, and other nearby communities.
