April's Story

April a mid sized dog

I wanted to write a note of gratitude for the wonderful care that my dog April has received from the dermatology department. April is participating in a 10 week trail to see if her immune system responds in a positive way to the shots that she is getting twice a week. Without this treatment April is prone to a cycle of staph and strep skin infections which make her vulnerable to other infections and could make her resistant to antibiotic treatment. If she could talk she would say thanks Dr. Reiter and team, thanks for not giving up on me!
