Welcome to Southeast Veterinary Dermatology & Ear Clinic
We are a veterinary referral practice specializing in the diagnosis and management of diseases of the skin, ears, and claws. We work closely with local, family veterinarians throughout North Carolina, South Carolina and also Savannah, Georgia in order to provide specialized care for dogs and cats with skin disease.
The Role of Your Family Veterinarian
Your vet knows your pets medical history, and we rely on him/her to determine the skin conditions that would benefit from
management by a veterinary dermatologist. Appointments with us can only be set up after receiving a referral from your veterinarian. After your initial appointment, we will contact your veterinarian by phone, as well as provide them with a detailed written report. Your family veterinarian is an important part of the team that will provide the best veterinary care to your pet.
What is a board-certified veterinary dermatologist?
The American College of Veterinary Dermatology (ACVD) is an organization of veterinarians who are certified in veterinary dermatology. To be certified by the ACVD, a graduate veterinarian must complete at least two years of postgraduate residency training at a university or approved specialty practice. In addition to this training, the certification process requires publication of original research in a scientific journal and demonstration of superior case management. Finally, the candidate must pass a comprehensive examination on all aspects of veterinary dermatology in order to become board-certified. www.acvd.org
Why see a specialist?
There are dozens of different skin diseases in the dog and cat, many with similar symptoms. Veterinary dermatologists are trained to recognize the subtle differences in these diseases and offer the most direct and cost-effective diagnostics and treatment. Specialists are an extension of your family veterinarian. Our hope is to compliment the quality care that your pet is already receiving with specific recommendations on dermatologic conditions.
