Virgin Valley Veterinary Hospital is excited to offer treatment for those animals that suffer from moderate to severe allergies that cause discomfort and pain to the pet. If you notice that your pet constantly bites itself, or scratches and whimpers while scratching then you should call our hospital to set up an appointment. It is likely that your pet may be suffering from an allergy. There are several types of allergies our pets have including flea allergies, food allergies and environmental allergies. Our doctors are well versed in treating these issues using not only medicine but also appropriate food choices and even medicated baths.

Virgin Valley Veterinary Hospital takes your allergy treatment options one step further by offering allergen specific immunotherapy. This is a treatment program where your pet is injected with small doses of the allergen causing them pain and discomfort, given over time in larger doses to keep the allergen from affecting the pet every day.

Immunotherapy is not a cure for allergies, but rather an ongoing successful treatment program. If your pet may be suffering from allergies, they may benefit from immunotherapy. If you would like to learn if immunotherapy options may be right for your pet, please call Virgin Valley Veterinary Hospital to schedule an appointment with one of our caring doctors.
