Welcome to our referral service website. This site has been designed to provide you with an insight into our veterinary dermatology referral service, the team and the services we offer. We hope you enjoy browsing our website.

Our professional team is committed to providing quality dermatological care for your pet who we consider to be a member of your family.

We are a friendly and expertly service dedicated to the treatment of all pets’ skin problems in the Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Berkshire region offering weekly clinics in three referral institutions (Chiltern Referral Services in Chalfont St Giles, Davies Veterinary Specialists in Higham Gobion and Active Vetcare Referrals in Maidenhead).

About Derm4Pets

We don't offer routine veterinary care. We just strive to offer the highest quality veterinary dermatology referral service available.

Derm4Pets is a specialist referral practice, providing a consultancy service for several referral centers in the South East, which is dealing with skin diseases (dermatological conditions) in animals only. This includes skin, ear, hair, and nail diseases in all species. We predominantly see small animals but referrals for large animals, e.g. horses are also welcome at Chiltern Referrals in Chalfont St Giles

​Skin problems are very commonly encountered in veterinary practice. Often these conditions are difficult to diagnose and/or manage. However, an accurate diagnosis and the correct therapy are very important for the quality of life, both of the pet and the owner. Many diseases, e.g. allergic conditions, are life-long afflictions that require dedicated management, from the vet and the owner.

Your primary care veterinary surgeon might consider to refer your pet for a skin problem to a dermatologist because your pet is suffering from a complicated skin problem.

A referral form can be downloaded for this purpose to make the referral procedure easy for referring veterinary surgeons. We provide the full range of dermatological tests, such as intradermal allergy testing, video-otoscopy, cytology, histopathology and cultures. Often digital images are helpful to monitor progress and we will use this in appropriate cases. Due to the high level of expertise, you can expect state of the art treatment of all patients and both the patients’ owner and referring vet are kept up to updated about the animals progress with a written report after each consultation.
