Why Would My Pet Need to See a Veterinary Dermatologist?

Skin disease, although rarely life-threatening, is extremely frustrating to treat. In most cases your veterinarian is capable of providing safe and effective therapy for your pet’s skin disorder.

However, in some cases, in an effort to provide the latest and most effective treatment modalities, your veterinarian may choose to offer a referral to a veterinary dermatologist.

Your veterinarian’s decision to offer referral to a specialist indicates that they want your pet to have the best possible care available.
