Cytology Evaluation

At the Animal Allergy and Ear Clinic we use cytology to examine the surface of the skin or ear canals for evidence of bacterial or yeast infections. This involves collecting surface samples of the skin on a slide, staining them, and then evaluating them using a microscope. In addition to identifying infection cytology can also be used to identify the type of cells in a skin mass, to look for evidence of ringworm and auto-immune diseases, and to inspect the appearance of a patient’s hair when there is hair loss. This type of sample collection and testing can further enhance diagnostic insight to develop a more specific diagnostic and/or treatment plan for your pet. We perform our cytology testing on-site at both of our practices to ensure accurate results and deliver accurate reporting. By offering this service on-site we are able to provide results in less time than clinics that rely on off-site laboratories.
