The Dermatology Service

Skin diseases in animals

Dermatitis and otitis are very common in animals, and there is a wide range of potential causes.

Some conditions are relatively straightforward, but there are many other unusual, difficult or life-long conditions that could benefit from referral to a specialist. In the Dermatology Service we have the skill, facilities and time to investigate and manage your patient’s skin problem, ensuring that they receive first-class care to maintain their quality of life.

Animals are referred to us for a variety of problems:

  • Pruritus
  • Alopecia
  • Nodules
  • Pustules
  • Scaling and crusting
  • Erosions and ulcers
  • Otitis
  • Nail or hoof problems
  • Antibiotic resistant infections
  • Laser surgery of the skin, feet and ears
