Dermatology has always been part of the small animal medicine service at QVSH. This integrated approach offers significant advantages as many medical cases present with dermatological signs.

Services offered include

• Video otoscopy
• Onsite CT and MRI for aural investigations
• Intradermal skin testing
• Photodynamic therapy
• Free telephone and email advice

The Dermatology Service is headed by Mike Herrtage, a RCVS Diploma holder in dermatology, and Mark Reading, who holds the RCVS Certificate in dermatology.

Looking for a few more willing volunteers with medium sized dogs (15-25kg) for a short food project at the QVSH. Do you live close to Cambridge and own a medium sized dog (any breed or cross weighing 15-25 kg)? If so we would like to invite you and your 4-legged friend to participate in one of our current experiments investigating food preferences in dogs. The test will take place at the Queen’s Veterinary Hospital in Cambridge (some days in Feb & Mar) and will take about 30 min per dog. If you are interested please send an email to Marie ( to receive more information.
