Pittsburgh Pet Dermatology
Our hospital offers extensive Dermatology Services. Our veterinarians will perform a detailed history, physical examination and basic medical diagnostics in order to diagnose and treat many routine skin ailments. Common diagnostics performed include skin scrapings, Wood's Lamp examination, hair (fungal) culture, and punch biopsies.
If your veterinarian feels your pet has a specific disease or injury requiring more advanced care or if they have not responded to therapy in an expected manner, they may refer you to a board-certified veterinary dermatologist for further evaluation.
A veterinary dermatologist specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of benign and malignant disorders of the ears, skin, mouth, hair, and nails. A veterinary dermatologist has also had significant training in the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disorders in pets.
