Excellence in treatment of allergy, skin and ear disease:

  • Allergic dermatitis, including complete skin allergy testing and immunotherapy

  • Stubborn, recurrent ear infections and their management

  • Non allergic skin disease of all kinds, including immune-mediated disease

  • Lumps and bumps and unusual wounds

We’ll work with you to get a diagnosis of the skin complaint. We’ll explain everything clearly and keep you well informed on the expected prognosis, treatment planning and costs. We try to keep the treatments as affordable as possible.


EXTRA VISITS OPENED UP: Due to Christmas coming we have opened up six extra days of consultations during late Nov, through to early December. We can thus accommodate urgent visits if needed. 

If your consultation is very urgent, please let our nursing team know and we will do our best to work something out.

Please call (03)9500 0922 or email us at vets@vetskinandear.com.au (our old number 0417019884 still works just fine).
We hope to see you soon!


CHRISTMAS CLOSURE DATES: we will be closed for business from: Friday 22/12/23 and re-open Monday 15/1/24.
Please contact us before closure for medications, scripts and vaccines and we can arrange pickup even after hours if needed, and can UBER deliver medications if needed.

During the closure period please contact your regular vet or nearest emergency clinic for support.

We thank you for your support in 2023.
We wish you a very nice Christmas and a very happy and prosperous 2024!

Please contact us directly. Phone is best.
See our contact page for contact info.

An initial 60-75  minute consultation is $343.00 (includes GST). Medications, laboratory fees and surgery fees are additional.
The initial visit involves a detailed review of the case history, a complete dermatological examination and lab work, then an explanation of the disease process and management options. At the end of your visit you will receive a detailed typed case summary and thorough treatment plan. This will also be shared with your vet. We try to make the treatment financially sustainable, discuss all costs with you upfront, and won’t have you coming back in a short space of time unnecessarily.

The earlier, the better! But it is never too late. We can always have a positive impact, to any case, no matter how complex or severe.
Skin complaints in your pet can be difficult to manage. We will do our very best to get you a diagnosis promptly, and get treatment underway that is safe and effective.

Dr Daniel Mitchell is a vet with 21 years of experience in treating diseases of dogs, cats, and horses. He is a Professional Interest Practitioner in Veterinary Dermatology and accepts referrals from other veterinarians and direct enquiries from clients also.

Dr Mitchell has completed significant training in Europe over 3 years under supervision from the world’s leading veterinary dermatologists. This training has been completed at the University of Vienna (Austria) and he completed his certification through the University of Luxembourg.

Dr Mitchell is closely connected to local vets and veterinary specialists in all fields. This allows for their input to your pet’s case as required.

From the initial consultation, you will be well informed. The initial consultations can be quite thorough – involving a very detailed history collection, examination and skin sampling, to enable diagnosis. You will have clear expectations of the short, medium- and long-term treatment plan, and will leave each consultation with detailed, easy to understand instructions.

Following our consultations, me and my nurses make ourselves available for you for case support. I need to ensure that you have a smooth run with your treatments so we achieve the best outcome. Follow up visits can be organised at relatively short notice, and very urgent re-visits will be prioritized.
