Browse our comprehensive selection of equipment, tools and consumables for professional skin examinations in dogs, cats and other pets.


Skin examinations are a routine part of a vet's daily work. A skin examination is carried out with varying degrees of precision depending on the doctor's suspicions and the animal's symptoms. Reasons for a skin examination are visual skin changes, wounds, loss of fur, itching and the suspicion of parasites. The range of diseases associated with skin changes is almost endless: infectious diseases such as leishmaniasis or leptospirosis, parasitoses such as hookworm or flea infestation can also cause skin changes, as can allergies and fungal infestations. 


A common examination method in veterinary medicine is skin scraping, in which the top layer of skin is scraped off and examined. The biopsy, which requires a deeper skin sample, or the scraping preparation, is usually examined in an external laboratory in which samples are applied directly to a microscope slide and optionally stained. In order to be able to perform skin examinations in the veterinary practice, numerous consumables, equipment and aids are needed. We have compiled some key products for you here:
