Patrick J. McKeever founded the Veterinary Dermatology Service at the University of MN in 1971. He served as head professor there for 27 years and taught hundreds of veterinary students. In 1994 Dr. McKeever started McKeever Dermatology Clinics.

McKeever Dermatology Clinics has grown since its inception in 1994. The clinic now includes multiple dermatologists, specially trained technicians, teaching programs, and several locations. We have advanced diagnostic and treatment capabilities including: video otoscopy, CO2 laser, allergy testing and wound healing. McKeever Dermatology Clinics has helped more than 22,000 dogs and cats with skin and ear conditions.

Our dermatologists continue to be on the cutting edge of dermatology. They have co-authored multiple textbooks and directed clinical research projects. They are sought after to speak at continuing education seminars.
Our entire staff is dedicated to finding the underlying cause of your pet’s skin or ear problem. We offer choices geared towards maximizing your pet’s comfort and minimizing side effects.

When you make an appointment at our clinic, please ask your primary care veterinary clinic to forward your pet’s pertinent records to us two days prior to your consultation. Please bring all of your pet’s past and current medication, ointments and shampoos to your appointment.
