Dermatopathology

When skin biopsies are required to achieve the correct diagnosis and prognosis for an unusual skin disease in a patient, Dermatology Clinic for Animals works closely with pathologists who specialize in the interpretation of the skin diseases unique to our companion animals. These dermatopathologists can recognize subtle changes in skin biopsies, utilize specialized laboratory staining methods, and consult with our dermatologists on an individual basis to maximize the diagnostic value of skin biopsies, and so enhance our ability to treat our patients successfully.
