Allergy, Ear & Skin Care for Animals (AESCA) is a veterinary practice that specializes in the diagnosis and management of diseases and disorders of the ears and skin. Allergy-related disorders are the most common reason pets are brought to us for care. We also specialize in other disorders that are induced by abnormal or detrimental activity of a pet's immune system. These include immune-mediated and autoimmune disorders.

Our goal is to determine the cause of your pet's skin or ear disorder and then start treatment as quickly as possible. We then advise you on how to best manage or resolve the disorder. When making recommendations, we place the comfort and well-being of your pet first and foremost. We also take into consideration your needs and abilities as a pet owner to care for your pet.

Kevin Byrne, DVM, DACVD is the chief of staff of AESCA. Dr. Byrne is board certified by the American College of Veterinary Dermatology, which is the only institution whose members are recognized by the American Veterinary Medical Association as veterinary dermatology specialists.
