WELCOME TO ANIMAL DERMATOLOGY NZ A VETERINARY COMPANION ANIMAL DERMATOLOGY REFERRAL SERVICE OPERATING IN WELLINGTON/TE WHANGANUI-A-TARA.
This practice is devoted solely to the diagnosis and treatment of ear and skin diseases in companion animals, also known as the "itchy dog" or "itchy cat".
This companion animal dermatology service was started by Duncan Graham BVSc BSc (Hons) in 2001 when he left general veterinary practice to concentrate solely on companion animal skin issues. Duncan brings more than 20 years’ experience to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic allergic skin conditions, recurrent ear infections, and any unusual presentations of a dermatological nature. Duncan travels from Nelson weekly or fortnightly to Wellington/ Te Whanganui-a-Tara where he sees cases referred by local veterinarians at two convenient locations: Pet Doctors Thorndon in the Capital Gateway on Thorndon Quay and Rappaw Central Veterinary Hospital, Kenepuru Drive, in Porirua.
