Itchy Skin

Learn more about the specific mobile and house call veterinary services offered by Creature Calls across Hobart.

There are 3 main things that make animals itch; parasites, infection and allergy.

It is that simple.

Stopping the itch is not always that simple though, if the condition has become longer term and more than one cause involved.  The effect of itch on an animal’s quality of life can be profound so it is important to find an effective solution within a reasonable time and budget. This requires good communication, some careful check overs and diagnostics with initially some regular revisits to monitor response to therapy.   Dr Cathy has a microscope that she can bring to your house and perform cytology at the time if required. Then once the itch is under control, a 3-6 monthly check and maintaining good parasite control is usually sufficient to keep things in order.
