Dermatology

 

Dermatologic (skin) diseases are one of the most common problems of dogs and cats.

In present time we can recognize hundreds of skin diseases. Unfortunately clinical signs are very similar with little differences.To get the final diagnosis is not simple and treatment is often long term, this can be very frustrating either for the owner and the vet. Long term therapy can be expensive.

Diagnostics and therapy of skin disease requires excellent doctor – owner relationship.

Here is the list of diseases we treat:

 

Daignostic testing:

skin scrapes – basic and most common dermatologic diagnostic test. Simple and quick test can be used to identify many types of parasitic infections. We use scalpel blades and scrape the skin in the direction of hair growth. The depth of the scrape depends on what we are looking for. We put the sample in the mineral oil and search for parasites under the microscope.

cutaneous cytology - direct impression smear is used for yeast or bacterial dermatitis

fine needle aspiration biopsy – this method should be used to aspirate the mass

tape preps – effective method of collecting Cheyletiella and lice for microscopic examination

trichogram – is used to visualize the hair for evidence of pruritus, fungal infection and pigmentaion defects and to assess growth phase

microbiology  cultures – we use it in deep bacterial infections, fistulas and many more. This method helps us identify the one particular bacteria and her antibiotic sensitivity.

dermatophyte test medium, fungal cultures – they are used to isolate and the identify dermatophyte organisms

allergy testing – we use serologic tests

biopsy – is used in neoplastic, autoimmune disease, keratinization defects and endokrine-like disorders

Because dermatologic examination needs a lot of time we would like to ask you to book an appointment.

If you are already treated, please take all the reports with you.
