The best for your pet.

Pet Dermatology.

In Florida's warm and humid climate, pets often suffer from skin issues that cause discomfort and can lead to more serious problems. If you require veterinary dermatology services, the St. John's AAH doctors are here to help. Our Veterinarians have a special interest in dermatology. Dr. Venkat Gutta and Dr. Sri in St. Johns, FL, can determine if your pet has a skin allergy, has become infested with fleas or ticks, or is simply reacting to Sunshine State weather.

Food is often the culprit in pet dermatology cases

Many of our pet parents have commented that changing their dog's or cat's diet resulted in skin problems such as excessive itching and licking. In other instances, overexposure, caused by feeding your pet the same food over a long period of time, can cause similar symptoms. If you are concerned that your pet may be having an allergic reaction to food, our veterinary clinic can assist. Allergy testing and an elimination diet help us determine if there is a particular ingredient causing the reaction. Often, switching your pet to a new food rectifies the issues.

Fleas, ticks, and other outside issues

There are a lot of creepy crawlies in the Florida ecosystem that can cause your pet to experience skin issues and discomfort. Our veterinarians recommend taking a proactive approach to flea and tick prevention with a monthly pill or topical treatment. Additionally, if you take your pets to wooded areas or places with a lot of tall grass, we suggest supplementing their monthly treatment.
