A veterinary dermatologist is a veterinarian with expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of animal skin, ear, hair, nail, hoof and mouth disorders. The pets we treat present with a variety of clinical signs (symptoms), such as itching, redness, hair loss, scale, crust, oozing sores and ear problems.
The key to successful management is often in diagnosing and controlling the underlying cause, not just covering up the clinical signs with medications. There are a number of possible underlying diseases that lead to the problems a pet experiences, including allergies, infections, parasites, autoimmune diseases, hormonal imbalances, cancer and other internal causes, and their presentations can vary greatly. This is why they need the expertise of a veterinary dermatologist.
Do you feel you have been dealing unsuccessfully with a skin condition for a long time? Do you feel like there is not enough time in an appointment to discuss and fully understand your pet’s condition? Are you looking for a safer alternative to current medications? Are you looking for procedures, such as allergy testing, that are not provided by your veterinarian? Are you just plain frustrated? Then, you need the help of a veterinary dermatologist. Dr. Globus can provide a fresh approach to your pet’s problem, starting with taking the time to get to know your pet and their individual needs. Her “toolbox” includes the diagnostics needed to determine the underlying cause, as well as a comprehensive knowledge of available treatment options.
Dr. Globus was conferred in 1994 with Diplomate (board certification) status by the American College of Veterinary Dermatologists, the ACVD. The ACVD is official specialty organization accredited by the American Veterinary Medical Association since 1982, and is charged with the maintenance of high standards of postgraduate training in veterinary dermatology. Only a board certified dermatologist, such as Dr. Globus can be assured to have the level of expertise that your pet deserves.
