Pet Allergies/Dermatology Services in Windham
Pets can have allergies and develop skin problems, just like people can, which can leave them uncomfortable or even in pain. Of course, that’s the last thing an animal lover—including our team—wants for a pet. At Canobie Lake Veterinary Hospital, our doctors have the tools and expertise to diagnose and treat allergy symptoms in dogs, cats, and other species to help your companion live a comfortable, allergy-free life.
Allergies and skin conditions are the body’s negative reactions to various substances (some of which are harmless), including certain foods, environmental allergens, parasites, and other substances. For the difficult-to-manage allergy cases, we are pleased to offer a breakthrough therapy called Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT). We are proud to be one of the first veterinary hospitals in New Hampshire to offer this treatment option.
About Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT)
AAT is a safe, painless, therapeutic approach that’s highly effective and clinically proven to relieve many of the symptoms associated with allergies and skin sensitivities. It was developed from more than 15 years of clinical research and has been successful in both humans and animals. This therapy modality involves the study of allergens, which allows for the treatment of a wide range of symptoms.
Although AAT cannot diagnose, test for, or cure allergies, it provides long-term relief from allergy symptoms by assessing the possible causes of stress on the body. AAT can be used for various conditions, such as:
- Chronic ear infections
- Chronic vomiting

“My yellow Labrador Ella, has had allergy symptoms since she was two years old and has been taking medications for years. This led me to seek alternative methods to treat her allergy symptoms. She began her Advanced Allergy Therapy at Canobie Lake Veterinary Hospital with Julie. Julie has been treating Ella using techniques that work for Ella. I have been beyond ecstatic that this method works for Ella! Shortly after her first visit I reduced her allergy medication from two pills per day to one pill, then reduced it to half of one pill after her second visit. We are currently working her off the last of the medication. I understand that the treatments are a series of visits that help treat multiple food and environmental triggers that cause Ella’s allergy symptoms. I wanted you to know that Ella is doing tremendously and that the affordable treatments are well worth the investment to finally relieve her discomfort. Thank you so much for Julie and for finding a solution that will allow me to keep Ella in my life as long as possible and in comfort. She rests much more comfortably and has given up chewing her nails and feet. Thank you so much!”
