For more than two decades, he has been researching the mechanism and treatment of atopic dermatitis, food allergy and itch in dogs; he also characterized multiple new autoimmune skin diseases in small and large animal species. He pioneered the use of evidence-based medicine in veterinary dermatology. More recently, he has expanded his interest onto veterinary molecular allergology.
