If your pet is frequently itching, scratching or biting its skin, he or she may be suffering from an allergy or skin condition. Veterinary dermatology treats common skin conditions and pet allergies, addressing both the underlying cause for your pet’s discomfort as well as providing immediate relief from painful symptoms. Our dermatologist has significant experience treating pet allergies and skin conditions with a particular interest in autoimmune skin diseases and ear diseases of the dog and cat . Our advanced diagnostic tests make it easier for our veterinary dermatology team to precisely identify the skin condition affecting your pet and take immediate steps to relieve your pet’s discomfort.

Dr. White-Weithers has brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Long Island area and believes in the need to make pets as equally healthy as human beings.  She believes in the need for compassion toward all animals and that they should be treated as such.  Even though she treats all aspects of allergic and dermatological disease, her special interests are in autoimmune skin diseases and ear diseases of the dog and cat.

Common reasons for cardiac examination in animals include heart murmurs, irregular heartbeats, respiratory complaints, and weakness or fainting. Because heart problems are common in older dogs and cats with other medical problems, we also perform many examinations on animals admitted to other services in the hospital (internal medicine, surgery, etc.), many of which are requested as part of a pre-operative evaluation. The majority of animals can be completely evaluated using only non-invasive examination methods. We also offer minimally invasive (catheter-based) interventions to repair or improve certain congenital heart defects, and we have extensive experience implanting cardiac pacemakers in dogs with abnormally slow heart beats.

NYVSC is proud to have two outstanding board certified cardiologists: Dr. Jonathan C. Goodwin, DVM, Diplomate ACVIM, and Dr. Dennis Trafny, DVM DACVIM available to help you and your Pet diagnosis and treat heart disease.
