Why is my veterinarian recommending we see a dermatologist?
Skin disorders are extremely common in dogs and cats, and they often manifest in the same way for different underlying causes.
The most common reason for skin problems in our pets is an underlying allergy. Sometimes it takes multiple visits to your veterinarian to diagnose and treat the problem. This can be time consuming, expensive, and frustrating for everyone involved. If your veterinarian recommends referral to a dermatologist, it is because he or she forsees a chronic or serious issue that is best dealt with by a specialist.
What is a veterinary dermatologist?
Veterinary dermatologists are veterinarians who have had specialty training, often at a university, for 2-3 years after veterinary school, and have passed a certification exam given by the American College of Veterinary Dermatology. They are well versed in animal skin disease and also in teaching pet owners about dealing with their pet's skin problems.
