Beneath their fur, our pets are covered with skin, and — just like people — they can suffer from dermatological issues that cause them great discomfort and distress. At Bonner Springs Animal Care Center, our veterinarian is pleased to provide our patients with comprehensive dermatological care with accurate diagnostics and effective treatment strategies.

If your pet exhibits any unusual symptoms or changes in its behavior, appearance, or appetite, we strongly encourage you to schedule an appointment for your pet.
Diagnosing and Treating Skin Conditions in Pets
In addition to physically examining a pet, we use a variety of diagnostic techniques like blood tests, biopsies, and skin scrapings to diagnose skin problems in pets. Once the underlying issue has been identified, our veterinarian can provide your pet with a treatment plan using a variety of treatment modalities such as medicated baths, topical ointments, medications, lifestyle adjustments, nutritional supplements, and more.
