Animal Dermatology Canterbury


This branch of Animal Dermatology NZ referral service started in 2001, and has been sold by Duncan Graham. Like Duncan, the new skin veterinarians are not specialists, but vets with a particular interest in and considerable experience and expertise in the diagnosis and management of skin disease in animals. This includes allergic skin conditions, recurrent ear infections and unusual presentations of a dermatological nature.

Lee Williams BSc, BVSc and Sylvia McLean BAgSc BVSc will be accepting referral cases from Canterbury and West Coast veterinarians and are available on a weekly basis at Woodend and Avonhead Vet Clinics respectively.

Animal Dermatology Canterbury deals solely with companion animal skin diseases. A referral may lead to more detailed investigations to reach a diagnosis of the skin problem and will include discussion of treatment/management options.
