The chewing. The scratching. The licking. These behaviors are all too familiar to many pet parents and they can be symptoms of a significant health problem. It could be allergies, an infection, stress or any one of many issues and it’s important that your pet see the vet when these symptoms start to happen.

At Animal Wellness Center of Pontiac we can examine and test your pet and, based on the diagnosis, provide you with treatment options that will provide relief to your best friend—and to you as well.
