Welcome to the Dermatology Service at the UC Davis Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital. Skin diseases are very common in dogs, cats and horses, and it can be frustrating for owners to determine the most effective therapy. Dogs and cats suffer from a wide range of skin conditions that include allergies, reactions to flea bites and other external parasites, infections, chronic ear infections, skin cancers, immune-mediated skin diseases, solar damage or hair loss. Working closely with owners to determine the cause of the problem, the Dermatology Service’s faculty and resident veterinarians perform thorough evaluations to determine the best course of treatment. Together, client and clinician can identify, manage and provide treatment or a combination of therapies tailored for each animal.
