Skin problems don’t need to become your pet’s every day. If your cat or dog might have a dermatological problem, please contact our team at Brownsville Spay Neuter!
If your pet has an itch to scratch, they might need the help of our veterinarians.
The medical term or itchy skin is pruritus. While it can be overwhelming to see your pet uncomfortably scratching, rest assured that pruritus is quite common in companion animals. While allergies aren’t the only cause, they’re often the most common culprit of pruritus.
Itching in your pet can also be caused by:
- Contact dermatitis (direct contact with soaps, perfumes, and cleaning solutions)
- Flea allergy dermatitis
- Seasonal allergies
- Food allergies
- Sarcoptic mange (mites)
- Atopy (heightened immune response to allergens)
Schedule an allergy test for your itchy pet today by calling (956) 550-8366 today!

TREAT YOUR PET’S IRRITATED SKIN
At Brownsville Spay Neuter, our veterinarians are experienced in diagnosing and treating skin disorders. Our goal is to keep your pet’s skin healthy and protected from infection through a proactive and effective approach.
As part of the allergy test, we will examine your pet, potentially conduct blood work, and consider alternative options depending on our findings. Treatment varies in complexity depending on the condition, but we always try to simplify the treatment to make life easier for you and your pet.
