What is Dermatology?

Veterinary dermatology at the Southern Arizona Veterinary & Emergency Center (SAVS) is provided by Dermatology for Animals. A veterinary dermatologist is a veterinarian with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of animal skin, ear, hair, nail, hoof, and mouth disorders. Specifically veterinary dermatologists have significant training and experience in the management of allergic skin disease. Just like people, pets can be overly sensitive to certain irritants that can cause them distress. Additionally, certain breeds are associated with skin conditions that bring discomfort to both the pet and the owner. Dermatologists are exposed to a broader range of these conditions on a daily basis and have learned how to identify the subtle differences between each condition. Dermatology for Animals can provide long-term planning for medical management of skin conditions and allergies. We will also provide relief for your pet and answers for you, the pet parent.
