Holistic health care isn't just for people. At Natural Holistic Health Care, serving North Miami Beach, FL, we provide holistic veterinarian services at our animal hospital for your fur babies. Let's take a look at how a holistic approach can help your pet with dermatology needs.
Understanding Pet Dermatology
Just like people, a pet's skin has certain needs and can develop uncomfortable conditions. Pet dermatology can address these needs for a cat, dog, or other pet in need.
Pet dermatology will address skin conditions such as itchy skin, redness, rash, or dry skin. Although these conditions sound like they may not be a big deal, they can create an uncomfortable situation for your animal. This can decrease their quality of life. As a pet owner you want to do everything you can to increase your animal's quality of life. If they are dealing with skin conditions, our holistic vet can help.
Common Pet Skin Conditions
A lot of skin conditions are caused by something in the animal's environment. Your pets cannot tell you when something is bothering them, so it is important to watch for any changes in their behavior which could signal that they are reacting to something.
This is a condition in which the hair follicles become infected and inflamed. It can cause intense itching and burning.
A ringworm is not a worm at all, but rather it is a type of fungal infection. It can be very itchy and make your pet very uncomfortable.
Yeast can start to grow in an overabundance in hard-to-reach places such as ears and the groin area.
How Our Vet Can Help
Our team provides a variety of treatment options for common pet skin conditions. These treatments can include topical/oral medications and all-natural herbal remedies. We will always strive to provide a holistic approach to your pet's health. This means that we will never use a treatment that will cause more health problems in another part of the body or system.
We like to work with pet owners to discuss treatment options. We want you as the pet owner to feel that you are taking an active part in your pet's care.
