Clinical Focus: 
I see clinical patients with students and residents and our caseload is very heavy for allergies, skin infections and recurrent ear diseases.  Most of the caseload is small animals but I also see horses one day/week. We deal a lot with resistant infections, so my focus has been on the correct identification and management of allergies to minimize flares and recurrence of infections.

Research Focus: 
My research focuses on allergic skin disease in dogs and horses. I have validated a model of canine atopic dermatitis and published a lot on pathogenesis of canine atopic dermatitis and help with the testing and development of new therapies. In recent years, I have also worked on allergic skin diseases in horses, the role of IL-31 in mediating pruritus in horses and on the development of monoclonals to block equine IL-31.
