Cytologic Evaluation

Cytology is the examination and study of your pet's blood or tissue cells under a microscope. Cytology can be used to detect inflammation, infection, bacteria, fungi, parasites, and cancer. Often, cytology is used to identify a lump or mass, certain skin diseases, or hair loss situations.

 

At Animal Friends Dermatology, a sample of the suspicious material is obtained, stained, and reviewed under a microscope for evaluation. This test helps to evaluate infections and changes in the skin at a superficial level so that proper treatment could then be administered.
