Skin and ear diseases often have a significant impact on a pet’s quality of life. Of the hundreds of conditions that affect pets’ skin and ears, here are some of the more common things that we treat:

  • Allergies
  • Ear infections
  • Chronic itching and scratching
  • Hair loss
  • Skin odor
  • Skin parasites
  • Fungal infections
  • Autoimmune diseases

Handsboro Animal Hospital's goal is to make a specific diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan that is both cost-effective and in the best-interest of your pet's long-term health. There are hundreds of different skin diseases currently recognized in dogs and cats. Many of these diseases look very much alike, with only subtle differences in clinical picture and historical backgrounds. Our vets are trained to focus on these differences and pursue a direct and cost effective diagnostic work-up followed by appropriate and effective treatment.
