Dermatology (skin problems) for pets
Dermatology covers all aspects of skin diseases including those caused by internal diseases such as cancer or endocrine disorders. Skin disorders manifest in many different ways and there is a wide range of possible underlying causes. A diagnosis may include parasitic infestations, allergies, behavioural induced self-trauma, auto-immune disease or drug eruptions.
Specialist Veterinary Dermatologists use clinical experience combined with simple non-invasive tests to achieve a specific diagnosis in order to treat the patient. We also provide a service reviewing current skin treatments that are no longer effective. Our dermatology service complements our surgical and medical services to allow a fully integrated approach to diagnosis and management of complex conditions.
