Dermatological disorders are commonly found in cats and dogs and can affect the skin, ears, paws and mouth. They can be caused by allergies, endocrinopathies and immune-mediated causes.

Our Specialist dermatologists are based at Highcroft Veterinary Referrals, ChesterGates Veterinary Specialists and Dovecote Veterinary Hospital. They provide full dermatological assessment, investigation and disease management.

The team use sophisticated diagnostic tools and provide services for intra-dermal allergen testing, biopsy, cytology, trichogram examination, advanced diagnostic imaging of the external ear canal and middle ears and ear lavage including video-otoscopy.
