What should I expect?

You can expect a discussion about the history of your pet and their presenting clinical signs. The doctor will perform a very detailed skin and ear exam and discuss pertinent findings. We will provide you with initial thoughts and a financial estimate for diagnostics and treatments.

Do I need to have a follow-up appointment?
The majority of the diseases we treat are chronic or recurrent conditions. Sometimes, multiple rechecks will be required to get you and your pet on track. Through treatments and client education, we hope to achieve the highest quality of life and medicine for our patients.
What are allergy shots?

Allergy shots (allergy-specific immunotherapy) are regular shots you give your pet over a pet’s lifetime to control their allergies. Each allergy shot contains small amounts of what your pet is allergic to and stimulates an immune response.

What is a food allergy trial or diet trial?

A food allergy trial is done by removing all diets and treats that may be causing your pet’s allergic response. It is best to perform a diet trial with a nutritionally balanced novel protein or hydrolyzed diet made for pets with food allergies.
