Animal Dermatology Clinic Celebrates 30th Anniversary
August 2011 marks the 30th anniversary of Animal Dermatology Clinic. Dr. Craig Griffin established Animal Dermatology Clinic in 1980 seeing cases in Community Animal Hospital in Garden Grove, CA. Dr. Wayne Rosenkrantz was a recent veterinary school graduate and just completing his internship at another veterinary clinic when he became the first Resident at Animal Dermatology Clinic in 1983. Soon after, they opened their own clinic (pictured below) in that same city.
Dr. Griffin, Dr. Wayne Rosenkrantz and a small dedicated staff represented the entire company.
Today, Animal Dermatology Clinic now has 7 full-time clinics in four states and 17 satellite locations. Currently, there are 17 Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Dermatology on staff. Animal Dermatology Clinic is now the largest single group of veterinary dermatologists in the world.
Calling All Groomers: ADC vets to give free seminars
This month Animal Dermatology Clinic doctors will be hosting an informational seminar to pet groomers in the Orange County, CA area.
Earlier this year, Dr. John Angus (Pasadena, CA) was a featured speaker at the Groomer Expo held in Pasadena, CA. This west coast event was attended by groomers from as far as Japan and had over 2600 attendees. Last month Dr. Joya Griffin (Louisville, KY) spoke to groomers at a similar event in Ohio.
Many groomers are eager to learn more about animals’ skin: recognizing common skin disorders and understanding the many products that are currently available and can be beneficial to pets. These local seminars are a revitalization of programs held in the past and nearly all Animal Dermatology Clinics will be hosting a talk in their area in the future.
If you are a groomer and located near one of our fulltime clinics, please email Don Fruta, email@example.com or call 949-936-0066 to place your name on our mailing list and perhaps discuss topics that you would like the doctor to present.
If you are a client and you believe that your groomer would be interested in these seminars, please pass this information on to him or her.
