What is a Veterinary Dermatologist?
A veterinary dermatologist is veterinarian who has additional specialty training through a 3 year residency program, and who has published papers, completed case reports, and passed rigorous, detail-oriented exams to become board-certified. If a veterinarian is not board certified, they cannot call themselves a dermatologist or a specialist. Dr. Eisenschenk at Pet Dermatology Clinic is a board-certified veterinary dermatologist.
