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.
