Is that a skin tag, a tick, a tumor or a toenail? Let’s check!
October is the month for witches, pumpkins and things that go bump in the night. But what if your pet has a bump…on their skin? Your pet may have bumps. Lumps. Missing fur. A black spot. A funny-looking toenail. Are these things nothing, or something of concern? For even the most observant owners, it’s tough to know what skin issues are ok and what needs further evaluation. Yes, your pet may have skin disease and you may not even realize it. For example, your pet’s missing fur may be a bald spot from a tumble or a fungus. Eeew! We can run a simple lab test to figure out which one it is! And if your pet has a little bump, it may be cancer. If it’s left unchecked, the bump may become larger and harder to remove, which may put your pet’s health at risk. But if we take a look early enough, we may be able to remove it with a big sigh of relief! And finally, that black “spot” you thought was a freckle on your pet, may be a tick! If our team removes it within a certain amount of time, your pet will likely not be infected by a tick-borne disease. Phew! Skin is the largest organ of your pet’s body, and there’s a lot to examine. When you bring your pet in for their yearly checkup, we’ll assess every part of it, from nose to tail! We’ll look for spots, rashes, warts, skin tags and everything in between to make sure your pet stays healthy…and cancer-free. It’s time to schedule your pet’s yearly checkup. We’ll perform a thorough skin check and a few other easy tests if needed to keep your pet healthy and happy! Make an appointment today!
