Skin disorders can be a source of major discomfort for your pet.

Dr. Helen Globus sees patients in 4 clinics in North Dakota and Minnesota and is currently making monthly visits to Red River Animal Emergency Hospital and Referral Center to address the skin health of pets throughout the region.

Our goal, at Red River Animal Emergency Hospital and Referral Center is to provide area pet owners with access to a professional who can accurately diagnose and treat skin issues due to allergies, hormonal imbalances, auto-immune disorders, chronic ear infections, infections caused by bacteria, parasites, or fungi, etc. If initial treatments by your primary veterinarian have proven unsuccessful, Dr. Globus may be able to help.
