Referring Veterinarians

The doctors at Dermatology for Animals work closely with referring and general practice veterinarians. When a disorder fails to respond to general treatment, we are here to help. After reviewing the case history provided by the owner and referring veterinarian, a veterinarian will perform a thorough dermatological exam. A summary letter is then sent to the referring veterinarian outlining the patient’s visit with us. We greatly value the relationship established with the referring veterinarian and maintain communication with them while their patients are being treated.

We Specialize In:
Intradermal Allergy Testing
Chronic Otitis
Video Otoscopy
Dermatohistopathology Service
