Skin and coat problems are common in cats and dogs. At Hôpital vétérinaire des Trois-Lacs, we offer dermatology services to treat and prevent skin conditions. If your pet has a skin problem, contact us for an appointment.

What causes dermatology issues in pets?

There are many factors that can cause skin problems in pets, like food and skin allergies, parasites (such as fleas), fungal and bacterial infections and hormonal imbalances.

What are the signs that your cat or dog has a skin condition?

There are many signs that your cat or dog may be suffering from a skin condition or disease. Here are the main ones:

  • Significant hair loss or bald batches
  • Wounds and skin irritations, such as:
    – Scabs
    – Dandruff
    – Redness and rash

  • Excessive itching, which you can see because:
    – Your cat is washing itself more often than usual, maybe even excessively
    – Your dog is licking and scratching itself a lot

  • Dull hair coat
  • Ear infections that can sometimes be a sign of an allergy

    If you notice any of these symptoms in your cat or dog, it’s best to talk to us so we can take a look and get to the root of the skin problem and find the right treatment.
