Welcome to our animal dermatology clinic

Partnering with Dermatology for Animals, AREC provides a range of animal dermatology services to identify, treat and resolve skin, ear, and nail issues.


We conduct specialist consults to examine your pet, discuss your concerns and plan a way forward.


Our team can help general practice vets review complex cases to determine a fresh treatment approach.


With access to state-of-the-art equipment, we perform testing to determine the underlying cause.


We recommend the latest treatments to manage the condition and give your pet much needed relief.
