Meet David Bentley

David Bentley, our leading veterinary dermatologist, brings over 25 years of expertise to DermVet. A graduate of Liverpool University, David has dedicated his career to veterinary dermatology. His passion for dermatology and dedication to pet health make him a trusted expert in diagnosing and managing food allergies in dogs. David’s extensive experience and compassionate approach ensure your dog receives the highest standard of care.

Our Simple Process

At DermVet, our process is straightforward and effective:

  1. Initial Consultation: We start with a detailed consultation to understand your dog’s symptoms, medical history, and current diet.
  2. Testing Phase: Based on the initial assessment, we recommend appropriate testing methods like blood tests or elimination diets. Blood tests are usually only used to look at the negatives. Food allergy is never diagnosed based on a positive blood test as many false positives occur
  3. Analysis and Diagnosis: David analyses the test results to identify potential allergens once food allergy has been confirmed after an elimination diet trial.
  4. Customised Dietary Plan: We create a tailored dietary plan to eliminate the identified allergens.
  5. Follow-Up and Support: We provide ongoing support and follow-up consultations to monitor your dog’s progress and adjust the plan as needed.

Understanding Dog Food Allergies

Food allergies in dogs can be tricky to identify, but we use effective methods like elimination diets and blood tests. Common signs include:

  • Itchy Skin: Persistent scratching or licking.
  • Digestive Issues: Vomiting or diarrhoea.

Whether referred by your vet or found online, our dermatologist is ready to help your pet.
