How to make an appointment at Pet Dermatology Clinic:
  • We look forward to seeing you and helping your pet!

  • Just give us a call at 763-210-1177.

  • We will contact your primary veterinarian to have records sent to us.  This is not a requirement, but it is very helpful for us to see your pet’s history, as well as keeping your vet informed about treatments.

  • We will provide you with a written treatment plan, usually at your appointment or soon after.

  • We will send a summary of the appointment, any tests done, diagnoses, and treatments to your primary vet.

  • You will follow up with us for skin, ear, and allergy concerns, you will still see your primary vet for vaccines or other issues.

  • P.S. The 2 hour parking spots are for you!!

Appointment Preparation:

  • Please fill out the online form below or if you would prefer to hand-write click here: New Client Form.  Email this form to us prior to your appointment or bring it with you.  It’s no problem if you don’t, we will go over things when you arrive for your appointment.

  • Please do not feed your pet 3 hours prior to the appointment in case blood work or sedation is needed.   

  • Do not bathe your pet or apply ointments to the skin or ears within 24 hours prior to the visit.

What to bring:

  • It is helpful to bring all the medications and shampoos your pet is or was on.

  • Bring a list of foods that you have tried and the ingredients in your pet’s current food.

  • If your dog feels more relaxed with a dog friend, feel free to bring them too.


  • New appointments take 1 hour typically.  If allergy testing is involved, allow 2 hours.

What to expect:

For most skin diseases, there are no cures, only long term management.   We will discuss options for management and develop a treatment plan tailored to your unique pet.  Follow up is crucial to make sure your pet is progressing appropriately.

After each visit to our clinic, your family veterinarian will receive a letter that details the dermatologic examination, tests, and treatments.  Remember that we do not provide routine preventive care; your family veterinarian is responsible for vaccines, heartworm testing, and monthly preventives.

Allergy Skin Testing:

There are many other options for the management of allergies other than allergy skin testing and shots.  We can discuss these with you at your appointment.  If you are strongly planning on having allergy testing performed, your pet will need to be off certain commonly used allergy medications.  Discuss with your veterinarian the proper tapering of medication, because some can have serious problems if stopped too quickly.  If you are not able to taper medications without your pet becoming too uncomfortable, please meet with us for an initial exam prior to allergy testing so we can discuss options.
