frequently asked question

What Should I Expect on My Initial Visit?

When you bring your pet in for an initial visit, you’ll be asked to fill out a form that will tell the doctor about your pet’s history. Dr. Young will review this information with you and discuss any previous treatments that have been tried. Then, armed with that information and the results of the physical exam, they will develop appropriate treatment options.

Avoid treating your pet's skin condition with home remedies or herbal ointments. While some botanical ingredients may be helpful for relieving human skin problems, they can exacerbate dog and cat skin conditions by inflaming infections or severely dehydrated skin. In addition, home remedies for a pet's skin condition may cause an allergic reaction resulting in difficulty breathing or swallowing.
