Skin Health October


Did you know that the skin is our bodies largest organ and performs amazing functions to keep us (and our pets) healthy? In October and November all consultations and vaccinations will come with an extra emphasis on skin examination at no extra charge.

In spring we see an increase in cats and dogs presenting to the vet clinic for a range of different skin issues. External parasites like fleas become a problem and cats and dogs begin to spend an increasing amount of time outside. Coincidentally in spring there is a surge in environmental allergens (like dusts and pollens). These may result in pets suffering from contact allergies or atopic dermatitis. Our pets may become itchy!

Have you noticed:

· an increase in grooming or scratching?
· wounds that are slow to heal?
· changes in existing skin conditions, lumps or bumps?

We understand how important your pet is to you and your family. By providing preventative approaches to your pets health and welfare, we aim to give your pet a happier and more healthy life.
