Skin and ear diseases often have a significant impact on a pet’s quality of life. Veterinary dermatologists supplement the capabilities of primary care veterinarians by providing additional expertise in the diagnosis and management of skin and ear diseases.

Of the hundreds of conditions that affect pets’ skin and ears, here are some of the more common things that we treat:

  • Allergies
  • Ear infections
  • Chronic itching and scratching
  • Hair loss
  • Skin odor
  • Skin parasites
  • Fungal infections
  • Autoimmune diseases

Our goal is to make a specific diagnosis and recommend a treatment plan that is both cost-effective and in the best-interest of your pet’s long-term health.

To become a board-certified veterinary dermatologist (Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Dermatology), veterinarians must receive an additional two years of training beyond veterinary school (“residency”) and pass a rigorous examination. There are approximately 200 board-certified veterinary dermatologists in the United States. Dr. Plant currently serves as the chairman of the committee that examines candidates.
