Dermatology for Animals consults from Veterinary Specialist Services (VSS) and has been providing the specialised care of dermatology in small animals, for over two decades.
There are hundreds of different diseases recognised to affect the skin of animals. Unfortunately, the skin can only react in a limited number of ways; making many of these diseases appear very similar. Often there are only subtle differences in the clinical appearance, history, or response to treatment allowing these diseases to be differentiated.
Our dermatologists and veterinarians have all received advanced training in their field and are able to identify these differences and formulate the most direct and cost effective diagnostic investigation.
We remain current on new research and developments by attending conferences both internationally and in Australia, are actively involved in research projects and have access to the world's journals through our association with the University of Queensland. Whilst the majority of the practice is concerned with diseases in dogs and cats we also see equine, exotic, and wildlife cases.
