Who we are
Dr. Becky Valentine started Petderm with a passion for providing clinical expertise and ongoing support to owners with pets who suffer from allergic skin disease. Our goal is to understand, diagnose, treat, and improve the health of pets and their owners. Allergic pets can suffer for years, and Dr. Valentine wanted to build a centre of expertise and compassion that could end their suffering, and vastly improve quality of life.
While allergies make up the majority of cases in the patients we see, Dr. Valentine also treats pets with immune-mediated skin disease, endocrinopathies, and various other less-common dermatological diseases.
Petderm aims to make your itchy pet more comfortable. Since every pet with an allergic condition has different symptoms and different needs, treatment plans are part of a very challenging and intricate craft. You’ve likely tried multiple diets, many medications, and spent a lot of money on other vet appointments before you ended up at our door. As experts in this area, we’re here to get answers sooner, and get you and your pet relief faster.
