We offer intra-dermal allergy testing, the gold standard in diagnosing environmental allergies. The testing helps identify outdoor and indoor allergens causing cat and dog allergies, including grass and tree pollen, environmental moulds, and house dust mites.
Pets with atopy (atopic dermatitis) often benefit from Allergen Specific Immunotherapy (ASIT) – administered as oral drops or allergy injections. This is a process in which allergens are administered to an allergic pet in small amounts, which helps build up a tolerance to allergies.
Ear Care for Pets
Pet dermatologists are specialists in treating ear conditions in dogs and cats. Video-otoscopic evaluations help determine the cause for ear conditions in pets, by aiding in assessment of the external ear canal, ear drums, and the middle ear.
Non-Allergic Skin and Ear Problems
Skin diseases include more than allergic skin disease alone. Bacterial and fungal infection, nail conditions, hair loss, skin tumours, autoimmune skin disorders may be some other causes of skin discomfort for a pet. A vet dermatologist possesses expertise in differentiating and treating these various skin and ear problems.

Dr. Jangi Bajwa has been working in the Vancouver area since 2005.
After working as a family veterinarian for a number of years, Dr. Bajwa pursued his special interests in treating allergies and skin issues in dogs and cats, successfully obtaining his Veterinary Dermatology diploma with the American College of Veterinary Dermatology (ACVD) in 2014.
