Veterinarian Information

If you have a case you feel would benefit from seeing us please e mail the history to us at and give the client our direct phone number 09 216 6222 or 021 754 683 so that they can call us direct to make a time that suits them to come in. Referral forms are available from the home page, or can be downloaded by clicking on this Download The Skin Vet Referral Letter.

At The Skin Vet we value and respect the veterinarians that refer cases to us and want to work together with both you and the clients to get the best outcome possible. Our aim is to provide the best medicine for our patients, make sure our clients are well informed and supportive of the process and to ensure that you are quickly and accurately informed of your patient’s condition and treatment plan.

The Skin Vet works on a referral only basis, and any conditions that are not related to skin will be referred back to you with regards to ongoing management.

Other services

We recognise that dermatological and ear complaints are often challenging and frustrating for clients and vets alike. This is why we are happy to provide advice via phone or (preferably) email for our referring vets about their cases. However, it is important to remember that much of veterinary dermatology is visual pattern recognition, so it is not always easy to diagnose conditions without seeing the animal, and in these cases we may suggest referral.
