At VSH of Palm Beach Gardens, our Pet Dermatology team is dedicated to helping our clients achieve a diagnosis quickly and efficiently. We tailor each treatment plan to the specific needs of the patient and their caregivers.
We recognize the impact that skin conditions such as allergies and infections can have on patients’ and their families’ quality of life. Chronic skin conditions require long-term management strategies. Short-term treatments can be implemented to provide patients with an acceptable level of comfort and relief from their itching and misery. Dr. Ursula and her team work closely with you and your primary care veterinarian to find and target the root of the problems. Our goal is to minimize the need for medications and treatments.
Pet Dermatology Treatment
To treat most skin conditions successfully, it is crucial to investigate and identify what allowed the existing infection to occur in the first place. Simply focusing on the existing skin and/or ear infection is not enough. If the underlying cause is not correctly diagnosed, those infections will likely keep recurring. Recurring infections may lead to other, worse problems down the road.
Our dermatologist Dr. Ursula and Erin, our dedicated pet dermatology nurse, will guide you through the diagnostic work-up. They always take into account your and your pet’s needs and wants. We consider our patients part of our family. We will do everything within our power to get to the diagnosis quickly and treat efficiently and safely.
