Preparing for Your Visit

Information regarding previous diagnostic tests, drugs, and foods given should be brought with you, or sent by fax to our office by your veterinarian. New clients will need to fill out an extensive history of the skin condition in order to assist the doctor in making a diagnosis. This can be downloaded from our website or filled out before the appointment. To help us best assist your pet's skin condition, we ask that you follow these guidelines:

  • Please do not bathe your pet or apply other topical therapies for at least 7 days before the appointment.
  • Please do not clean ears or apply medications to the ears for at least 2 days prior to the appointment.
  • Please do not feed your pet the morning of the appointment in case blood work or sedation is needed.
  • Follow your primary care veterinarian's recommendations regarding continued therapy until you are seen in our office.
  • If intradermal allergy testing (skin testing) is desired for your allergic pet, there are important drug withdrawal times in order to obtain an accurate test.  Click here to download withdrawal times for skin testing form.

What to Expect
Your initial appointment will be for approximately one hour. The doctor will review your pet's history as well as pertinent reports and lab work, and perform a complete dermatological examination before recommending appropriate diagnostic and treatment options. If skin biopsies, skin allergy testing or other long procedures are necessary, we will make every effort to perform them that day if possible. After completion of the examination and additional testing, we will give you typed discharge instructions, and will send a detailed report to your veterinarian. Most skin conditions cannot be resolved with one visit; rechecks with the dermatologist will be scheduled as needed. Of course, while we will follow your pet through the diagnosis and treatment of the dermatological condition, the continued general care of your pet will remain in the hands of your regular veterinarian.

Fees—Please ask our receptionist for an estimate of charges for a typical visit. All fees must be paid at the time of the visit. We accept cash, check, Visa, Master card, American Express, Discover Card, CareCredit®, and Wells Fargo.

Cancellation Policy
If you find it necessary to change or cancel your appointment, please let us know at least 24 hours in advance by calling 913-381-3937. By contacting us to cancel or reschedule an appointment, we can help another pet during that time. We keep a cancellation list for our patients to get in sooner as appointments become available. If you do not show for an appointment and have not called to cancel at least 24 hours in advance, you may be responsible for a cancellation fee.
