Dr. Anthea E. Schick earned her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of California at Berkeley in 1994 and her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine from Cornell University in 2002. While at Cornell, she worked with some of the leading veterinary dermatologists in the country and decided to pursue a dermatology career.
In 2003 she completed a one-year internship in small animal medicine and surgery at a private referral practice in Albuquerque, New Mexico. After completing her residency at Dermatology for Animals in 2006 and achieving board certification in 2007, she decided to stay on with the team and, in 2009, became part owner of Dermatology for Animals.
Dr. Schick has published an extensive review of the microbiologic diagnosis of canine otitis in the international journal, Veterinary Dermatology. She has given continuing education lectures to veterinarians in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas and Utah about animal dermatology. She enjoys teaching and participates in the training of visiting senior veterinary students, interns and dermatology residents.
Dr. Schick enjoys all aspects of veterinary dermatology but has a special interest in allergies and ear disease. She is a member of the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Arizona, California and New Mexico Veterinary Medical Associations, the American Academy of Veterinary Dermatology and the American College of Veterinary Dermatology.
Dr. Schick practices in several western states including Arizona (Avondale, Scottsdale and Gilbert), New Mexico (Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Santa Theresa) and Utah (Salt Lake City).
Dr. Schick was raised between Northern California and Flagstaff, AZ. She now lives in Tempe, Arizona with her husband and two daughters and enjoys hiking, rafting and spending time with family. She has first-hand experience with managing canine allergies with her very allergic Chihuahua, Pookie.
