Several clinical studies have indicated that up to 75% of small animal patients are presented to veterinary practices for dermatological disorders.

Dermatology involves a wide range of skin and systemic diseases. A complete examination and diagnostic evaluation is very important for the animals comfort, treatment and management plan. 

There are multiple steps involved in the diagnosis of dermatological conditions including:

  • Coat brushing
  • Skin scraping
  • Tape impressions
  • Trichograms
  • Cytological examinations
  • Biopsy 
  • Dermatophyte culture and PCR  
  • Wood’s lamp examination
  • Bacterial culture 
  • Blood tests 
  • Allergy testing 
  • Immunotherapy
