Veterinary Dermatology: What to Expect at Your Pet’s Appointment

Our veterinarian will work with you to determine the cause of your pet's discomfort and will recommend treatment based on their needs.

Examination & Diagnosis

At the beginning of the appointment, the vet will review your pet's history to aid in the diagnosis of their condition. Next, they will use the diagnostic tools at our in-house laboratory to establish the source of your pet’s skin condition.

Treatment Planning

Once the cause of your pet's skin condition has been determined, we will develop a plan to treat it. Treatment may include prescription medication, shampoo/conditioner, an ear flush, allergy vaccines, or simple changes to your pet’s environment.
