Dog and Cat Allergy Treatments in La Crosse

There are hundreds of known skin diseases that affect dogs and cats. At La Crosse Veterinary Clinic, our veterinarians are trained to diagnose and treat allergies and diseases of the skin, ears, and nails, with consideration for the specific symptoms of each case. Our team can also perform testing to determine if there is an environmental or food allergy or an infection. Once we determine the cause of your pet’s condition, we can determine the best treatment options, putting an end to their allergy and dermatology discomfort.
