Veterinary Dermatology

Dermatology refers to the study of the skin. Skin disease is a frequently observed problem in dogs and cats, especially in tropical climates. Diagnosing a skin problem in your pet may simply require an examination by a veterinarian; however, most skin diseases or problems require additional steps to accurately obtain a diagnosis. Additional diagnostic procedures may include blood work, skin scrapings, biopsies, etc.

There are many causes of skin problems, ranging from allergies to hormonal disorders to parasites. Please schedule a consultation for your pet if you notice any excessive itchiness, loss of hair, and/or the presence of scabs or scales on the skin.
