What to Expect at Your Pet’s Appointment

Our dermatologist will work with you to determine the cause of your dog or cat's discomfort and will recommend a treatment plan based on your companion's needs.

Examination & Diagnosis

At the start of your feline or canine's appointment, our dermatologist will review your pet's history to help them diagnose their condition. Then, they will use the diagnostic tools that we have in our in-house laboratory to determine the cause of your pet’s skin condition. Some of the diagnostic tools we may use include serum allergy testing, skin biopsies, cultures, cytology, and more.

Treatment Planning

When the source of your pet's skin problem has been found, we will establish a treatment plan. You cat or dog's treatment could include prescription medication, shampoo/conditioner, an ear flush, allergy vaccines, or simple changes to their environment.
