There are hundreds of different skin diseases currently recognized in the dog and cat. Many of these diseases look very much alike, with only subtle differences in clinical picture and historical backgrounds. Our dermatologists are trained to focus on these differences and pursue a direct and cost effective diagnostic work-up.

As specialists, we stay current on new research and treatments, and are often actively involved with the research. Our dermatology practice is not limited to small animals and we often have equine and occasionally exotic patients. Learn More >
