Investigation of Skin Diseases

Kent Equine Hospital offers a dedicated equine dermatology service. Skin diseases in horses can be difficult to diagnose and frustrating to manage, frequently because they have been present for some time and received multiple treatments prior to investigation. We investigate a full range of presenting signs such as recurrent urticaria (hives), pruritis (itching), scaling and crusting, nodular diseases and alopecia and pigmentary disorders, and investigate and manage all types of dermatological disorders, including neoplastic, immune-mediated, infectious and miscellaneous conditions. Patients can be seen as an outpatient or admitted for more detailed investigations including Intradermal allergy testing and skin biopsies.
