Does My Pet Need A Dermatologist?



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 SkinVet® Clinic treats:

  • 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.

Board certified veterinary dermatologists have 2-3 years of specialized training beyond veterinary school. At SkinVet Clinic, Drs. Jon Plant, Matthew Carnett, and Tia Taketa are dedicated to treating skin diseases, ear problems, and allergies of pets. Our goal is to improve your pet’s quality of life so that your companion can be happy, healthy, and comfortable. Our patients are often referred to us by general practitioners or other specialists. Your regular veterinarian will continue to be your partner in providing preventative and wellness care to your pet.
