Does your pet constantly lick, chew, bite, scratch or shake his/her head? Do you see hair loss, scabs or dandruff? Is there a change in the skin or coat’s color or texture? Do you smell a bad odor from your pet’s skin or ears? These are the symptoms veterinary dermatologists at the ADRC treat every day.
Skin disease, although rarely life-threatening, can be challenging. To provide the latest and most effective treatment, family veterinarians may choose to refer pets to a board-certified veterinary dermatologist. This shows that they want your pet to have the best possible care available.
At the ADRC, our doctors are board-certified veterinary dermatologists with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of animal skin, ear, hair, nail and mouth disorders.
