DERMATOLOGY

Mary P. Schick, DVM, DACVD

Dr. Schick is our board certified veterinary dermatologist. Dr. Schick has practiced veterinary dermatology in the metro-Atlanta area for over 25 years, and is one of the founders of AVS.

Veterinarians know that animals' excessive scratching, licking or hair loss can signify the presence of allergies, bacterial, or fungal infections, parasites, hormonal problems, or even skin cancer.

 When pets have itching, scratching, allergies, or other dermatological or skin problems, the Dermatology team at AVS is here to help.

FELINE RADIOTHERAPY

ROYCE E. ROBERTS, DVM, DACVR

Radiotherapy is the safest and most effective method of treatment for feline hyperthyroidism. In this non-invasive treatment, the hyperthyroid cat s injected under the skin with radioactive iodine (Radioiodine or I-131). The radioiodine then seeks and destroys abnormal thyroid tissue without endangering other organs. This injection allows the thyroid gland to return to normal function. While most cats regulate their thyroid levels within one month, a small number can take up to three months. By law, the treated cat must stay with us for at least 3 days post treatment. This ensures radiation levels are sufficiently safe for the cat to be with their owners.
