Dermatology is one of the specialties that presents the highest number of cases in the daily life of small animal clinics. Approximately 40% of the visits made to our hospital are for a dermatological problem.

  • Immune-mediated skin diseases: lupus erythematosus, pemphigus,...

  • Bacterial diseases: superficial and deep pyodermas.

  • Fungal diseases: dermatophytosis, Malassezia dermatitis,...

  • Endocrine skin diseases: hyperadrenocorticism, hypothyroidism, alopecia

  • Keratinization disorders

  • Neoplastic and non-neoplastic tumors and cysts.

We perform the following tests to establish a good dermatological diagnosis:

  • Skin scraping: it is indicated for any dermatological problem, especially when the presence of skin parasites is suspected, such as Demodex, Sarcoptes, Cheyletiella,...

  • Trichogram: consists of the direct microscopic examination of plucked hairs. It can provide important diagnostic information.

  • Cytological examination.

  • Bacterial and mycological cultures.

  • Allergy tests.

  • Skin biopsy.

  • Hematological and biochemical panels.

  • Endocrine and immune function tests
