Diagnostic Testing for Your Pets

Our dedicated team of veterinary experts utilizes advanced diagnostic tests to uncover the causes of skin and ear issues. Tests include:

  • Skin and Ear Cytology: Microscopic examination of skin and ear samples helps us identify the type of infection or inflammation your pet may be experiencing.
  • Skin Scraping for Mites: A vital step in diagnosing mite infestations, allowing us to offer targeted treatment.
  • Intradermal Environmental Skin Testing & Immunotherapy: Small amounts of environmental allergens are used in skin testing enabling us to tailor immunotherapy treatments to your pet’s needs.
  • Hair Examinations for Mange and Ringworm: Precise diagnosis of these common skin conditions is essential for effective treatment.
  • Bacterial Cultures and Susceptibility and Fungal Cultures: Isolating the causative agents is key to prescribing the right medications.
  • Bloodwork: Comprehensive blood tests help us assess your pet’s overall health.
  • Skin Biopsies for Dermatohistopathology: When deeper examination is required, skin biopsies provide crucial information to guide treatment.
  • Video Otoscopy: This procedure allows us to further examine your pet’s ears precisely, aiding in treatment.
