Our Sartell veterinarians can often diagnose a skin problem by simply examining your pet and listening to the history of the problem. Some dermatologic diseases or conditions do require additional diagnostic procedures to ensure a correct diagnosis. Depending on your pet’s symptoms, history and the results of our physical exam, we may run blood work or perform a skin scraping, biopsies or a urinalysis.

Our veterinarians have specialized training and interest in dermatology, allergy and skin disease.  At Pine Cone Pet Hospital we often accept referrals from Veterinarians in a for our dermatology emphasis.  Travel locally to Sartell, is much easier than driving to a referral center an hour to 2 hours away.
