Heather Smith MA VetMB CertVD MRCVS Advanced Practitioner in Veterinary Dermatology heads our dermatology department at our fully equipped hospital and referral centre in South Manchester. We are able to take referrals from first opinion Veterinary practitioners for in depth investigations and treatments.
Investigations and treatments are usually carried out on the same day in order to minimise disruption for clients as much as possible. Once a long term treatment plan has been established, patients can benefit from re-examinations with us or cases can be referred back the original veterinary surgeon for ongoing management of the case.
Suitable cases for referral include:
- Acral lick dermatitis
- Dermatological manifestations of internal disease
- Parasitic dermatoses
- Pruritus - intradermal allergy testing
- Scaling, crusting and ulcerating disorders
Diagnostic techniques include:
- Skin Sampling
- Allergy investigation
- Punch and excisional biopsies
