Our canine companions are especially sensitive to specific environmental allergens in the Southwest Region of the United States. At Embrace Veterinary Care, our experienced veterinarians are here to provide advanced dermatology and allergy services for pets in Richmond and the surrounding areas. Our team will help identify and alleviate your dog or cat’s allergy symptoms with personalized attention and care and will do whatever it takes to ensure your companion’s health and happiness.

At Embrace Veterinary Care, we offer diagnostic testing for environmental allergens through IDEXX Laboratories. Using this service, we can test for allergies to things like trees, pollen, weeds, and grasses that are present in the Richmond area. These tests allow us to determine which allergen is causing a reaction in your pet and enable us to provide a quick diagnosis and effective treatment. Our team provides customized allergy treatment programs to help desensitize your furry companion to airborne allergens to help improve their overall quality of life.

Our team also provides in-depth consultations for pets with food allergies and sensitivities. Some of the most common canine food allergies come from beef, chicken, egg, and dairy products. If your pet has food-related allergies, they may be allergic to more than one food. We will work with you to detect food allergens by creating customized elimination diets for your four-legged companion. We also offer hydrolyzed foods to treat food sensitivities and injectable allergy medications that can be administered in our clinic or incorporated into your home-care program.
