Spring is itchy skin season for your pets!
Like people, pets suffer environmental allergies (atopy) due to pollens, molds, insects, house dust, and other allergens. Allergic reactions can occur during certain seasons or year-round, depending on which allergens cause the pet’s problems. One of the safest, long-term options for controlling environmental allergies is allergy serum or immunotherapy. South Carolina Veterinary Specialists & Emergency Care (SCVSEC) develop targeted therapy for individual patients based on an intradermal (skin) allergy test, which is considered the gold standard in treatment and ultimately is the most cost-effective option for management of this lifelong condition. Additionally, they offer other options for long-term allergy control as well.
Their board-certified veterinary dermatologist, Dr. Jackie Watson, and her team are available to assist you in getting your pet’s itchy skin under control.
SCVSEC has served the Columbia area for more than 20 years and is the area’s longest serving specialty and emergency veterinary hospital. They are here for you and your pets 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! To schedule a weekday appointment with one of their specialty departments, which include cardiology, oncology, dermatology, internal medicine, or for emergencies 24/7, please call 803.561.0015.
