Does My Pet Need A Skin & Itch Test?Updated 8 months ago

If your pet suffers from irritated, itchy or smelly skin, a skin & itch test is your next step.

It is also a good idea to test when you see signs of infection and post treatment. 

Signs you should test:

  • Irritated Skin
  • Irritated Skin Folds
  • Scratching
  • Smelly Skin/Paws
  • Chewing/Licking at Paws
  • Skin Discharge
  • Hot Spots
  • Scabs on Skin
  • Hair Thinning/Loss

Please contact a local or virtual veterinarian right away if your pet is acting sick.
