Just like people, pets can suffer from several types of skin issues.

If your dog or cat spends a lot of time scratching, itching, or chewing on their skin, it could be a sign that they are suffering from an allergy or a skin condition. At Parkview Pet Hospital, we offer a complete range of veterinary dermatology services in Long Beach to help make itchiness, discomfort, and pain things of the past for your precious pet.


If external parasites like flea have been ruled out and your pet still seems to be scratching non-stop, they likely have an underlying allergy or skin condition.
Allergies are common among pets, and animals are often allergic to the same things as humans. While pollen, dust mites, and ragweed might make you sneeze, though, they’re more likely to make your pet itchy.

Itchiness also commonly arises as a symptom of a food allergy. Many dogs and cats are allergic to beef and or chicken byproducts, wheat, soy, dairy, and/or corn.

In addition, pets can suffer from skin conditions like mange and ringworm. Excessive scratching and chewing can lead to secondary bacterial infections, too, so it’s important to address these problems as quickly as possible.
