Friendship Dermatology Specialists
Skin problems are one of the top reasons owners seek veterinary care for their pets. Despite easy recognition of dermatologic problems, managing these conditions can be challenging for even the most experienced veterinary professional.
At Friendship Hospital for Animals, our board-certified veterinary dermatologists can help diagnose skin conditions – from the easily treatable to the more complex diseases that require ongoing care. The Friendship Dermatology Specialists team, including our coordinator and technicians, will guide you through the treatment process and follow-up.
Our dermatologists are trained to treat a variety of skin conditions including, but not limited to:
- Skin allergies to fleas, food, or environment
- Excessive itchiness
- Ear and skin infections
- Complicated pyoderma including resistant bacterial infections
- Parasitic infections (fleas, mites)
- Hair loss and hair disorders
- Nail disease
- Auto-immune skin disease
- Heritable or congenital skin conditions
We can perform cytology, intradermal (skin) or serum (blood) allergy testing, deep ear flush, and biopsy sampling for histopathology and tissue culture as needed for each patient.
How to schedule:
Initial consults can be scheduled by the dermatology coordinator, by any client care technician in our call center, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The dermatology department is available Monday-Friday, 8 AM – 5 PM. Dr. Lee’s appointments are Monday-Thursday; Dr. Kunder’s appointments are Tuesday–Friday.
How to prepare for the first appointment:
The appointment will last approximately 60 minutes. Please take some time to complete the questionnaire [download PDF] before your appointment. This information will be very helpful for the doctor to determine your pet’s diagnosis and treatment plan. You can fill it out and email it (email@example.com) or bring it to the hospital on the day of your appointment.
