Health and wellness are the motivation behind everything we do as veterinary dermatologists. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is often the source of strange and confusing diseases. We know it can be frustrating for pet owners and their companions when hard-to-determine skin problems come up. It is our job to not only provide specialized care for pets but also to educate and work with their families on the best treatment options. Our board certified veterinary dermatologists are highly trained and experienced in identifying and treating a variety of skin conditions, from allergies to ear infections, hormonal problems, autoimmune disease, and even more severe illnesses.
Personalized Treatment Plan
A pet’s itchy skin can be caused by a variety of allergies, including food, parasites, pollen or other environmental factors. Since every dog or cat responds differently to various treatments and medications, our veterinary dermatologists work closely with pet parents to create a personalized treatment plan for their companions, with the ultimate result being a better quality of life and a happy animal.
Our dermatologists use state-of-the-art tools for laser procedures for skin growth removals, as well as a video otoscope to clean deep ear infections. Our dedicated and compassionate team keeps up with the latest in the dermatology field, including studies on dog allergies, as well as new, innovative topical treatments for resistant infections and allergies
Our dermatologists also work in close collaboration with CVS’ internal medicine and oncology specialists.
This highly collaborative environment allows us to offer more comprehensive dermatology care; we have a great group of doctors who work together to make sure we provide the best care for our patients, who may be undergoing treatments for cancer or kidney disease, or another condition or disease that causes skin reactions.
Skin conditions can impact a pet’s overall health and day-to-day activities. Dermatology may not be something many pet parents think about, but it can improve their companions’ quality of life. We are here to help your pet enjoy life to the fullest.
What is a Veterinary Specialist?
A primary care veterinarian treats a broad variety of animals and conditions. Veterinary specialists, however, must complete an internship, a two to four-year specialized residency, publish a paper in a peer-reviewed journal, in addition to receiving their veterinary degree. Specialists must also undergo a series of rigorous examinations based on knowledge and skill in the given specialty.

What I really like about dermatology is we work with the pet parent to determine what their pet needs. You really get to know your clients and your pets. These are long-term long term problems; it’s a lot of trust and it’s a partnership. I am partnering with the owner to help their pet have a better quality of life.
