Like humans, our fur companions often suffer from skin diseases and disorders. These can be caused by diet, allergies, or genetics. Detection of what causes these skin diseases and disorders is important for both you and your pet, as it can be as frustrating for all involved.

For the safety of all hospital patients, all dogs and cats must be leashed, crated or carried at all times. Retractable leashes must be locked at all times.


Once you have consulted with your primary care veterinarian and you pet is referred to our dermatologist, you can call Monday through Friday 8am-5pm to schedule an appointment. If our specialty coordinator is unavailable at those times, you may be asked to leave your name and phone number so we can schedule you an appointment when she is available.
Appointments/consultations are approximately an hour, depending on the severity of the case. Our dermatologist will review the medical record before examination of your pet.

If you would like a consultation with our dermatologist, please call us at 559.451.0800 to schedule an appointment, then fill out this form.

Associated Fees

The cost of examination with our dermatologist is $150.00 and includes consultation and evaluation of the skin. Payment can be made by cash, check, Visa/MasterCard/Discover/American Express, H3 Wellness, Scratch Pay, or CareCredit.  We do not extend lines of credit. All payment is due at time of services.

Please be advised, clients who have short noticed cancelled or no-showed more than two scheduled appointments will be required to leave a deposit of $150.00 (the cost of an examination), as we typically have a waitlist of over 10 clients.

Proposed Treatment Plan

All clients are presented with proposed treatment plans for medical care for their pet. After examination by our doctor, a treatment plan will be generated based on the medical needs of the pet. A pre-payment of the low end of the treatment plan is required for treatment.
