Animal Dermatology & Allergy was founded in 1996 by Dr. Cannon.
The Rocklin clinic serves as our primary office location with Modesto, Fresno, and Boise serving as convenient additional locations for our clients. We employ some of the best veterinary staff in the country- our office manager Denise and our technicians Janessa, Jessica, and Juliann are truly amazing. Their level of service, knowledge, and experience makes every client feel welcome and every pet special.
We strive to provide a dramatically exceptional experience by delivering a noticeably higher level of service, medicine, and compassion to our clients and patients. To realize this, we also extend this courtesy and commitment to our staff, community, vendors, service people, and all who honor us with their visit.
