Our dermatology department is led by an Advanced Practitioner with a wealth of experience.
We are able to take referrals from first opinion veterinary practitioners for in-depth investigations and treatments that are usually carried out on the same day in order to minimise disruption for clients as much as possible.
Once a long term treatment plan has been established, patients can benefit from re-examinations with us or cases can be referred back to the original veterinary surgeon for ongoing management of the case.
Common cases for referral include:
- Acral lick dermatitis
- Dermatological manifestations of internal disease
- Parasitic dermatoses
- Pruritus – intradermal allergy testing
- Scaling, crusting and ulcerating disorders
We investigate using a range of methods including intradermal skin testing, cytology, culture and sensitivity allergy investigation, punch and excisional biopsies, and immunotherapy.
