Refer A Case


Our dermatology team are very experienced in diagnosing and managing acute and chronic skin & ear diseases in dogs and cats. Our team consists of two dermatologists and a dermatology nurse. Our initial consultations are longer to allow time not only for history taking and examination, but also to perform in-house microscopy. We are benefited by being part of a large multi-disciplinary hospital which allows us to involve other Specialists if needed when managing more challenging cases or cases with concurrent diseases.

Diagnostics and Procedures

  • In-house microscopy including cytology and examination of hair and skin samples
  • Video-oto endoscopy
  • Intradermal skin testing for patients with atopic dermatitis
  • Skin biopsy sampling
  • CT to assess for presence of middle ear disease
  • Patient-side video-otoscopy during the consultation

We see a wide range of conditions including:

  • Parasitic diseases
  • Bacterial and fungal skin infections, including resistant and unusual infections
  • Allergic skin and ear disease
  • Ectoparasitic conditions
  • Alopecia
  • Hormonal conditions
  • Claw and nail disease
  • Immune mediated conditions such as pemphigus foliaceus and discoid lupus erythematosus
