- In-house cytology and scrape examination
- Ear flushing under general anaesthetic with Karl Storz video otoscope

Rosie Skinner is an Advanced Practitioner in Veterinary Dermatology and is happy to see dermatology cases where the owners are keen to ‘get to the bottom of it’ or take steps to prevent future flare-ups. She is also happy to see cases where patients are not responding to standard treatments or have unusual lesions.
Rosie is also an experienced general practitioner, and aims to have as practical as possible approach to skin cases to maximise patient comfort and client compliance.
Prior to the appointment, please email a full written history or a copy of the clinical notes together with all relevant laboratory reports and a referral letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or via the referral form.
Ideally, withdraw any current treatment at least seven days before the first appointment. If this is an issue, please get in touch.
A written report is sent to referring veterinary surgeons after each examination with a summary of the investigations performed and treatments recommended.
