Animal Dermatology South was the first veterinary practice in the world to install Xoran's VetCAT Pet-friendly CT scanner. This advanced technology allows our team to provide your pet with advanced imaging of the head, ears, nasal cavity, and mouth. General anesthesia is seldom necessary as sedation is often adequate due in part to the VetCAT's efficiency. We often utilize the VetCAT CT Scanner in conjunction with video otoscopy affording ear cases a very thorough evaluation.
Laser surgery results in less inflammation, less pain, and less bleeding. Laser surgery is offered as an innovative surgical technique for patients that require the very best. This method allows your pet to have a surgical procedure without experiencing the amount of pain, swelling, inflammation, or bleeding that may be seen with more traditional surgical techniques. http://vet.celasers.com/surgical-small/

Cryosurgery, freezing masses with liquid nitrogen and no stitches. Cryosurgery is ideal for patients with masses on the skin, eyelids, or ears. Cryosurgical treatment of masses can often be performed without sedation or anesthesia and no stitches. However, the site requires a few weeks to form the scar that replaces the mass.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can benefit a a multitude of dermatological conditions. Often times hyperbaric oxygen therapy will increase the rate of recovery.
Video otoscopy provides a magnified image of the ear canal and surrounding structures in addition to providing a platform for thorough ear cleansing, biopsy, and foreign body removal.
Intradermal allergy testing, the gold standard in allergy tests for environmental allergies. Intradermal skin testing is the gold standard in allergy testing which is seldom available in a general practice setting. Due to our interest in dermatology, we provide this service along with custom formulation of allergen specific immunotherapy/allergy vaccine for your allergic pet. This does not test for food allergies. A novel ingredient elimination trial/food trial is the "gold standard" for diagnosing food allergy.
