Dermatology Service

Our experienced and friendly team is staffed by RCVS and European Specialists in Dermatology and supported by a dedicated dermatology nurse. With the very latest diagnostic and treatment equipment, we take referrals from referral practices from all over the UK. Investigations and treatments are typically completed on an out-patient or same-day basis wherever possible to reduce disruption and inconvenience for our clients.

The Dermatology Service does not work in isolation and works in close association with other specialists and services in the Small Animal Teaching Hospital to provide a multidisciplinary approach for patients if needed.

We can investigate and treat referrals for all types of dermatological problem. Allergic skin disease is common and using intradermal testing, bespoke immunotherapy and balanced multimodal therapy we aim for maximum treatment success. We offer rush immunotherapy for accelerated effective dosing level achievement when appropriate.

The ear disease (otitis) clinic encompasses advanced imaging and video-otoscopy with a focus on treatment and prevention. Advanced imaging with CT or MRI allows improved assessment of middle and inner ear ailments to assist accurate diagnosis and treatment. Video-otoscopy is essential for the prompt and detailed investigation, diagnosis and treatment of ear diseases and myringotomy. Collaboration with anaesthesia, imaging, neurology and soft tissue surgery services allows for a holistic and successful approach to these cases.

The dermatology team look forward to being of assistance.
