Thank you Dr. Sweers for the incredible care you give my fur babies.
You have also taken care of me in those hysterical moments when I am worried about them. Your kindness and compassion is above and beyond along with the great medical care.

Top notch vet!
We have been taking our kitty Jasper to Dr. Ben all of his 7 years, and his wife Julie has been our groomer as well. They provide top notch service and go above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate their customers.

What Causes Pet Allergies?
If your pet has an allergy, we need to know what they’re allergic to so we can treat them properly. The allergens that affect our pets the most include:
- Dust/dust mites
- Ingredients in food such as eggs, chicken, beef, and dairy
- Cleaning solutions and fertilizers
Dog food allergies, seasonal allergies, and skin allergies are the cases we treat most often. Consequently, each case may require an entirely different treatment approach.
Treating Cat and Dog Allergies
When we treat a pet for allergies, we also need to focus on treating their symptoms to give them relief. Itchy skin isn’t just uncomfortable; it can also lead to bacterial infections which can make the itching even worse. We need to break the itching cycle to help your pet’s skin barrier heal.
It’s essential for us to examine your pet and discuss their lifestyle so we can better understand their underlying problem. Your pet may also need to undergo testing for a definitive diagnosis. Our end goal is to have your pet’s symptoms and allergies fully under control with the help of medication and possibly a change in diet. Regardless of which treatments you ultimately choose for your pet, we will always be here to guide you to ensure they are getting the best care.
