What do we offer? Where the owner cannot or will not accept a physical
referral to a veterinary dermatologist, there is often the possibility that
specialist input can be helpful in that patient's management. If you, as the
examining veterinarian supply us with historical, physical examination and test
result data we can comment on possible strategies, differential diagnoses to
consider and on the current treatment regime. Pictures are extremely helpful.
All comments made by us will be based on the findings of your examinations
and questions. We will supply a written report, which can then also be given
to the owner (who will typically be paying for this service).
What do we not offer? This is not a diagnostic service. Offering a diagnostic
opinion without a personal examination could jeopardise the health of the
animal under your care and we will not do this.
What is the cost and how does one pay? For a typical consultation 50-€
payable by credit card or direct bank transfer. For an extremely detailed and
more time consuming case, this may increase to 75-€.

Dear Colleague, welcome to this website dedicated to animal dermatology and
dermatopathology. The following information pages are designed to help you with
your patients. If you think the patient information pages will help owners to
understand their pet's dermatitis better, please feel free to send them to this
In the part dedicated to Clinical Problems (see button to the left) we have
information grouped based on clinical signs at presentation, to select these
choose the appropriate buttons on the menu at the left side of the "Clinical
Problems" page. We hope that the disease descriptions and pictures may help
you to narrow your differential diagnosis lists.
Any references to treatment are intentionally broad, as it is neither possible,
ethical or legal to make treatment recommendations without having detailed
individual patient information.
As a service to veterinarians who have no access to a referral dermatology
specialist or whose clients decline such a referral, we offer a form of
"teledermatology" as a service (see below). This service is not intended to
replace a referral where the owners would be able and willing to undertake such.
