Our Veterinary Dermatology Team

Our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Laura Stokking, has a special interest in the diagnosis and management of infectious diseases, such as MRSA (a disease caused by bacteria that is resistant to commonly-used antibiotics), other resistant bacterial and fungal infections, as well as breed-specific dermatological diseases. Dr. Stokking treats all species of pets, in addition to dogs and cats.

Dr. Stokking is actively involved in clinical trials to study ways to improve the quality of life for the allergic patient and to advance dermatologic therapies in multiple species. Rest assured, your pet's skin health is our priority. To learn more about Dr. Stokking and other members of our dermatology team, please click on the links to the right.
