Getting to the Root of the Itch; establishing a 'Derm Protocol' for your Practice

 

Speaker: Dr. Valerie Fadok

Dr. Valerie Fadok received her Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Washington State University in 1978, after which she did an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the West Los Angeles Veterinary Medical Group.  A residency in veterinary and comparative dermatology followed at the University of  Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, and Dr. Fadok became board-certified in veterinary dermatology in 1982. 

 

Dr. Fadok served as an assistant professor and staff dermatologist for two years at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine, after which she returned to the University of Florida as assistant professor to work in the small animal clinic and to develop the subspecialty of large animal dermatology.   These years in the clinic seeing so many dogs, cats, and horses with chronically inflamed skin inspired her desire to try to understand inflammation and how it could be better controlled. 

 

Dr. Fadok entered graduate school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and 4 1/2 years later earned her PhD in Experimental Pathology; her thesis covered a novel way in which dying cells in the body were tagged for elimination and how this elimination controlled inflammation.  She spent the next two years as a Research Fellow at National Jewish Medical and Research Center refining these studies, then became Associate Professor at Texas A & M’s veterinary school, where she continued to treat small and large animals with skin disease and research how melanomas regressed in Sinclair swine.  In 1995, she returned to National Jewish in Denver where for 9 years she continued her research on how dying cells controlled inflammation. 

 

In 2004, she found she really missed her patients and the care of animals with skin disease, and joined Veterinary Skin and Allergy Specialists at the Veterinary Referral Center of Colorado.  A recent family move to the great state of Texas has given her the opportunity to work with the talented veterinarians and staff at Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists, Houston, TX. 

 

Dr. Fadok has lectured internationally, nationally, and locally on subjects relating to veterinary skin disease, immunology, and inflammation, and has been a dermatology consultant on the Veterinary Information Network (VIN).  As of January 2016, she joined Zoetis as a veterinary specialist in Dermatology.  Dr. Fadok has lectured internationally, nationally, and locally on subjects relating to veterinary skin disease, immunology, and inflammation.
