SKIN DISORDERS AND SKIN INFLAMMATIONS are among the most common reasons for pet visits to the veterinarian, and diagnosing dermatology conditions is a routine challenge. The need for a proper diagnosis is essential for determining the most appropriate course of therapy, and achieving the best outcome for the pet.
There are only a few dermatologic tests that can be performed to determine the cause of the skin disease, and not all require a specialist laboratory. Some of these tests can easily and quickly be performed in practice. They do not require special equipment and can in most cases deliver a definite result while the patient is still in the practice.
