Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center
Dermatology Patient


As with humans, disorders of the skin in pets can be chronic in nature. The dermatology service strives to form a bond of trust with you in order to enable us to care for your pet as long as necessary. Dr. Harold W. Richardson, MS will keep your primary care veterinarian informed in a timely manner of all treatments prescribed or lab work performed through our facility. Our goal is to provide a coordinated team approach to all aspects of your pet’s care.


Our practice is dedicated to a combination of the best patient care, client education and personal service. A variety of cases are referred to our office including:

  • Allergies
  • Ectoparasites
  • Skin infections (bacterial and fungal)
  • Endocrine disorders
  • Dermal manifestations of metabolic problems
  • Congenital and keratinization disorders
  • Immune-mediated conditions
  • Skin cancer

These very diverse conditions may present with similar symptoms. Differentiating between these conditions often requires specialized training. Our goal is to perform the necessary diagnostics for each of these conditions to enable us to treat them appropriately. We strive to identify and treat the underlying problem as well as to alleviate the symptoms that may develop.
