    Default Anyone know of an equine dermatologist in the Frederick MD to Winchester VA area?

    I give up. I can not clear up a derm problem on my horse and the regular vets are just useless. Need an equine dermatologist in the Frederick, MD, to Warrenton, VA area. Anyone know any?

    Probably won't find a dermatologist that "just" does horses but you may get a veterinary dermatologist who has an interest in horses even though their major focus is small animal. In your area I would put in a call to Marion Du Pont Scott Equine Hospital and see who they recommend.

    Yep. As far as I know, there aren't any "equine" dermatology training programs. Try the search feature on this site to find a dermatologist in your area:

    You might try a trip to Morven Park. They can biopsy the rash and send it off to a pathologist. Also, ask them to photograph the rash. I think they have a dermatologist at the Blacksburg campus who can review the pictures if you ask them to forward them to the dermatologist.

    Yeah, I haven't been able to find any on staff around here. Equine dermatology seems to be a very, very rare specialty. Only found a couple on the Internet, very far away. I'll try calling around, but I'd really like a specialist to see this condition. I've already been through several vets that were SURE they knew what it was and how to treat it.

    I used this practiced in Richmond VA for my dog, but they also do horses.

    Thanks. That's about 3 hours away, but it would definitely be doable when the weather is cooler. This is long standing so it's not a problem to wait.

    Dr. Rhodes is in NJ, but she might be willing to consult with your vet. http://njvetderm.com/96.html
