Allergies & Dermatology

The chewing. The scratching. The licking. These behaviors are all too familiar to many pet parents and they can be symptoms of a significant health problem. It could be food or environmental allergies, an infection, stress or any one of many issues, and it’s important your pet see the vet when these symptoms start to happen. 

 At Elberton Animal Hospital, we can examine and test your pet and based on the diagnosis, offer you treatment options that will provide relief to your pet—and you as well.
