At the VSH of Palm Beach Garden’s Dermatology Service we are dedicated to helping our clients achieve a diagnosis quickly and efficiently and we are committed to tailoring each treatment plan to the specific needs of each patient and their caregivers.
We recognize the impact skin conditions, such as allergies and infections, can have on the patients’ and their families’ quality of life. Chronic skin conditions require long-term management strategies, as well as short-term treatments to provide patients with an acceptable level of comfort and relief of their itching and misery. Dr. Ursula and her team will work with you and your primary care veterinarian to find and target the root of the problems, thereby minimizing the need for medications and treatments.
To treat most skin conditions successfully it is crucial to not simply focus on the existing skin and/or ear infection, but also to investigate and identify what allowed those infections to occur in the first place. If the underlying cause is not correctly diagnosed, those infections will likely keep recurring and may lead to other problems down the road.
Dr. Ursula and Erin, our dedicated dermatology nurse, will guide you through the diagnostic work-up, always taking into account your and your pet’s needs and wants. We consider our patients part of our family and we will do everything within our power to get to the diagnosis quickly and treat efficiently and safely.
