We understand how important it is to keep your pet healthy and happy. But unfortunately, some pets may develop allergies and dermatological issues that can cause discomfort and pain.

That’s why we offer allergy and dermatology services to help identify and treat these conditions.



Allergies in pets can manifest in a variety of ways, including skin irritation, itching, and gastrointestinal problems. Many pets experience seasonal allergies. Some of the most common allergens that pets react to include certain foods, insect bites, pollen, dust, and mold. Identifying the source of your pet’s allergy is the first step in managing their symptoms.

Ferstl Veterinary Hospital offers allergy testing to help pinpoint the exact cause of your pet’s symptoms. We use a variety of methods, including blood tests and skin tests, to identify the allergens that are triggering your pet’s symptoms. Once we’ve identified the cause, we’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that may include dietary changes, medication, and environmental modifications.

Pet Dermatology

In addition to allergies, pets can develop various dermatological conditions. These can include bacterial infections, fungal infections, and parasitic infestations.

One of the most common dermatological conditions that pets experience is flea and tick infestations. These pesky parasites can cause a range of problems, including skin irritation, itching, and even the transmission of serious diseases. We offer a range of flea and tick prevention and treatment options to help keep your pet safe and comfortable.

If your pet’s been scratching for four days, it’s time to see the vet. Don’t put off relief from uncomfortable itching. Call us at (989) 871-3521 to schedule an appointment.
