Skin pathologies affecting dogs and cats are very common. From allergies, ectoparasites, acute or chronic ear infections, immune-mediated, fungal, genetic, viral, neoplastic diseases, to others that may affect the nails or cause hair loss.

We will assess the problem to detect the cause and reach a diagnosis on the basis of a specialised consultation. Our aim is to find the specific disease and proceed with a treatment adapted to the dog’s or cat’s needs.
