Pet Skin Scrapings

Pet skin scrapings are a vital diagnostic tool in identifying the underlying causes of skin problems in both Large Animals and Companion Animals. These issues may include itching, redness, hair loss, and skin lesions.

Our experienced veterinary professionals carefully collect samples from the affected area of your pet’s skin. This procedure is essential for obtaining the necessary material for examination.

The collected skin samples are examined under a microscope by our skilled team. This close examination helps us detect parasites, fungal elements, bacteria, or other factors responsible for skin conditions.

Key Highlights of Our Pet Skin Scrapings Services:

  • Identification of Skin Conditions: Skin scrapings allow us to diagnose various skin conditions accurately. We can identify parasites like mites (such as Sarcoptes or Demodex mites), fungal infections (like dermatophytes causing ringworm), bacterial infections, and allergic dermatitis.
  • Customized Treatment Plans: With a precise diagnosis in hand, we can create tailored treatment plans for your pet. Depending on the specific condition, these plans may include medications, topical treatments, dietary adjustments, or other therapies.
  • Follow-Up Care: For some skin conditions, follow-up skin scrapings may be necessary to monitor the progress of treatment and ensure that your pet is responding well to therapy.
