Scheduling an Appointment
Please call our office to schedule an appointment.
Although not required, a referral from your regular veterinarian is recommended in order to allow Dermatology Clinic for Animals to obtain past medical records and maintain communication throughout your pet’s treatment.
The initial consultation will take 1-1.5 hours. Determining the medical history of the patient is often the most important part of the appointment, and the pet owner can enhance this part of the appointment by completing the patient history questionnaire (click on Pet Owners, then Online Forms) prior to the appointment. During the appointment, the doctor may obtain samples from your pet’s skin or ears for in-clinic microscopic analysis. Depending on initial test results, appropriate medications are prescribed and further investigation may be indicated.
