Our team members love what they do, and it shows. Dr. Plant, the founder of SkinVet Clinic, chose veterinary medicine as a career when he was just six years old. He studied dermatology in his second year of veterinary school and was hooked! After 30 years as a veterinary dermatologist, he still enjoys helping pets overcome common, but often challenging skin and ear disorders.
You’ll find that all of our team members are dedicated to helping your pet and that a dermatologist brings a wealth of specialized experience to your best friend’s medical team. Chances are good that we’ve seen your pet’s condition before, and our breadth of knowledge always guides our recommendations.
