Pine Bluff Animal Hospital

Internal Medicine

Our pet care goes beyond vaccinations and examinations, and veterinary medicine has caught up with human medicine in terms of technology and diagnosis capability. As part of our full range of services, we can diagnose and treat pets that are suffering from dermatological or allergy issues.

Dermatology

Our team has experience in a variety of disorders that effect the skin, ears, hair, and nails. We also have expertise in the treatment of allergies and immunology to address conditions such as allergic induced skin conditions, skin cancer, parasitic infections, chronic ear infections, autoimmune diseases, endocrine disease, and peri-anal furunculosis.

Allergy Testing

Your pet can have an allergic reaction to substances they breathe, eat, and touch. Common signs of an allergic reaction include scratching, chewing, ear infections, hot spots, vomiting, and diarrhea. By being aware of the symptoms and seasons, you can help alleviate the discomfort of allergic reactions in your pet.

We test for allergens by collecting a blood sample, which pinpoints the substance your pet is having a reaction to. It is not uncommon for pets to be allergic to more than one substance. Still, if one allergen is controlled, the other will likely subside.

Types of allergens:

  • Contact allergens: grass/weeds, fleas, wool, and household cleaning products
  • Inhaled allergens: weeds, pollen, dust, dust mites, and mold spores
  • Food allergens: wheat, grains, protein sources such as chicken, beef, and pork
