Our Values

Our Purpose

We are highly trained professionals with expertise in veterinary dermatology operating under the supervision of a registered specialist. Our commitment to excellence, advanced expertise, and compassionate care sets us apart.

Dermatological conditions are known to significantly impact the quality of life of both the pet and their owner. Often, they are recurrent or recalcitrant and frustrating to pets, owners, and vets alike. By focussing exclusively on dermatology, we have developed expertise that allows us to diagnose and treat skin, ear, and nail conditions efficiently and effectively. We also collaborate with your primary care veterinarian to ensure that your pet receives the best possible comprehensive care, now and into the future.

Thank you for considering us as your trusted partner in your pet’s dermatological care. We look forward to helping your pet thrive and improving their quality of life. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
