- Please arrive 5-10 minutes early for your appointment. This gives the staff time to meet you and verify all information about you and your pet.
- We ask that you do not bathe your pet at least two days prior to the exam.
- Unless otherwise requested, Dermatology for Animals will contact your referring veterinarian for current medical history regarding your pet. This allows us to establish communication with your regular veterinarian and in some cases alleviates the burden of running duplicate tests.
- At every appointment, your veterinarian will review your pet’s medical history and perform a thorough dermatologic examination. Tests such as cytology, skin scrapings, culture or blood work may be required to obtain an accurate assessment of your pet. Your veterinarian will then discuss the various treatment options available. Please download, print, and complete the patient-history form and bring it with you to your first appointment.
- At the end of the examination, you will receive relevant handouts and instructions regarding medications prescribed by your veterinarian. If you were referred to us by another veterinarian, a summary letter will then be sent outlining your pet's visit with us.
To schedule an appointment, speak with your pet's veterinarian or give us a call at (877) 604-8366. We look forward to meeting you and being able to provide expert, compassionate and quality dermatological care for your pet.
