Most pets aren’t strangers to skin disorders, which are often brought on by allergies. Our hospital frequently helps pets with allergies, and we’re well-versed in the frustrations that allergies can cause for pets and their humans. When your pet’s skin is raw, itchy and uncomfortable and you're at a loss about what to do—our veterinarians can provide the help you need!
It’s important to get excessive scratching or licking concerns addressed quickly because they can lead to open sores and pain, and even create additional anxiety or behavior problems for your pet.
Itchy pet? Let us put you both at ease
WHAT ARE THE MAIN CAUSES OF ITCHING IN PETS?
Pruritus is the medical term for itchy skin, which is common. Allergies are not the only possible cause, but they tend to be the most frequent. Itching can be caused by conditions such as:
- Pyoderma (hot spots)
- Yeast infections of the skin
- Bacterial infections
- Skin cancer
Our veterinarians are experienced in diagnosing and treating skin disorders and allergic reactions. Keeping your pet's skin healthy and removing the cause of any allergic reaction will bring your pet much needed relief and protect against secondary issues such as skin infections.
We determine whether the root of the condition is a behavioral issue, parasite, skin infection, or something else, and work with you on a plan to help your pet feel better.
Kudos to Copeland Veterinary Hospital
These people are wonderful!! I rushed my boy in as fast as I could because he was having an emergency and even though they had closed the front desk, they let me in to make sure he would be okay! Absolutely my new veterinarians from now on!

I have been using Copeland for my pet services for several years and while I always receive such amazing service and the staff is always so helpful just have to brag on them a little more. My dog began to be violently sick on a Saturday. I called the emergency number and was immediately connected to a doctor. Even it being so late on a Saturday evening, Dr. Josh came to the office and prescribed medication. He was friendly, great bedside manner and put me to ease right away. I could go on and on about the great staff of Copeland Veterinary. Not only do they treat your pet like their own, they take both their safety and the safety of their clients very seriously during this pandemic. In my life, I have seen many vets, many people who work in the animal business but everyone at Copeland is the very best and I couldn't imagine going anywhere else.

Staff and doctors are amazing. My little puppy broke her leg and they were so fast to get her in and taken care of. Dr Baker is an amazing surgeon and him and the whole staff are so caring. He kept us informed the entire time our baby was with them and he personally called to check on her several times after she came home just to make sure was doing ok. I would highly recommend them!!

We couldn't be more pleased with the wonderful advice and care that we have received from Copeland's staff. If you want to work with people who truly care about your pet's well-being, Copeland's is the way to go.

Have been to this vet twice with the same dog and two different emergency situations and the second time was on Christmas Day and they were great both times with my fur baby! Sent text message updates with pictures and daily phone calls to let us know how she was doing!
