Just as human medicine has specialized, the diversity and availability of advanced veterinary care for our animal companions has increased through referral to veterinary specialists. Medicine, both human and animal, is constantly changing and improving. The veterinary specialist is up to date on the latest information and treatments, and has the sophisticated equipment for his or her area of expertise. Veterinary dermatologists diagnose and treat lesions and symptoms affecting the skin, hair, nails, mouth, and ear canals. Allergies are a very common cause of skin and ear problems in companion animals (dogs, cats, and horses). The veterinary dermatologist is the specialist trained to treat allergic skin disorders.
Dr. Werner was raised in the San Fernando Valley, and attended Harvard High School. He received his undergraduate degree from Iowa State University, and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine in 1987. Following a one-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery at California Animal Hospital, Dr. Werner was accepted to the residency program in veterinary dermatology at the University of California, Davis, School of Veterinary Medicine. Dr. Werner passed his boards to become a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Dermatology in 1991.
Dr. Werner is a valuable asset to our clinic and to our patients. As one of his satellite clinics we are able to provide our patients with the best medicine veterinary dermatology has to offer. Once a month he travells from his clinic in Los Angeles, Animal Dermatology Center, to see our patients and referrals from various hospitals in the Washoe County area.
