Dr. Logas graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986 and practiced in San Antonio, Texas for 3 years while her husband completed his residency in pediatrics (for people).
They returned to Ocala and Dr. Logas began her dermatology residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After finishing in 1992 she stayed on part time as assistant professor of dermatology.
After the birth of her second son in 1993, she founded the Veterinary Dermatology Center in Winter Park. She finally tired of commuting to both Gainesville and Winter Park and fortunately for us, retired from the University in 1998.
Dr. Logas is a past president of the American College of Veterinary Dermatology and continues to serve on several committees for the college.
She and her husband are now officially “empty nesters”, but their sons, along with two grand-dogs are frequent visitors. Dr. Logas currently has two dogs, Ruby, an 11 year old Lab, and Sprite, an 11 year old border collie, both of whom refuse to act their age.
Dr. Schwassmann graduated from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine in 1989 and practiced in south Florida for 5 years before returning to Gainesville for her dermatology residency.
After completing her residency in 1996 she moved to Orlando and joined the Veterinary Dermatology Center. Dr. Schwassmann has served on the executive board of the American College of Veterinary Dermatology and continues working on several committees. She is also a member of the organizing committee for the North American Veterinary Dermatology Forum.
She shares her home with Dakota, a labrador retriever, (a rescue with bad allergies of course!), and Lucy who must be part Husky because she loves to talk and sing (regardless of whether you are interested in what she has to say). The household is run by Mickey (the cat who enjoys sleeping on the dog beds so the big dogs cannot use them)
