Dermatology (Skin)

Dermatology is the medical specialty concerned with diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the skin. Skin problems are one of the most common medical problems Veterinarians encounter. They can also provide some of the more challenging cases we see. Diagnosis of skin problems can rely on many things including an accurate history (what you, the Pet Owner, have observed), testing and response to therapy. Successful treatment or control of skin disease requires good communication between you and your Veterinarian to allow for adjustment and fine-tuning of treatment protocols.
