Dogs and cats can be just as miserable as their owners when it comes to allergies however, they are more likely to display signs of allergies through itching, scratching, biting, licking and hair loss. 

These skin problems are common in dogs and cats and can be caused by hormonal disorders, allergies, infections, or parasites such as fleas and mites. At Sugar Hill Animal Hospital, allergies are one of the more common conditions that are seen on a regular basis. 

To understand what is causing allergy flare ups our veterinarians can perform allergy tests similar to those used for humans to determine the cause of the allergies and then develope a treatment plan.
