Dermatology The Dermatology Service functions as part of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Each of our patients is evaluated by a team comprised of a dermatology technician, veterinary students, and a faculty member.

Our goal is to help clients and their primary care veterinarians understand what is causing the animalís skin or ear problems, and to develop the most suitable plan for management.
