Pets - Dermatology

Dermatology referrals for pets

There are many dermatology conditions that affect our pets. An essential part of finding the cause of your pet’s skin problem is firstly spending time discussing your pet and their history, followed by a detailed clinical examination and finally appropriate diagnostic tests. We will then work together to provide the best treatment for your pet.  

Mary-Jane Vance, BVMS GPCert(Derm) MRCVS, gained the ISVPS (International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies) General Practitioner Certificate in Dermatology in 2019. She is based at the Kilmarnock branch. 

All clients are very welcome to use our dermatology service but, if your pet is not registered at MBM, your vet will need to make a referral.

“Mary-Jane was fantastic with Nero and helped his skin condition so much.”

“Our little Leia had a head like a gremlin before Mary-Jane’s intervention. She has her cat head back with just the odd scratch here and there. Thank you.”

“Buddy has been a wee medical anomaly since day 1! Mary-Jane has been so helpful with great advice and guidance with getting to the bottom of his skin issues. Wouldn’t trust anyone else with our boy!”

“We first met Mary-Jane earlier this year when we took our boxer, Bailie, to see her as we were struggling to get a diagnosis from our previous vet practice. Mary-Jane shown her vast knowledge and diagnosed Bailie with a skin allergy very quickly and after several visits the treatment given was successful as her skin is no longer sore and itchy. Bailie has really taken to Mary-Jane to the point where she gets so excited when she sees her, which is a testament to how Mary-Jane is as a vet. MBM Vet Group is very fortunate to have an asset like Mary-Jane at the practice! Thanks again!”
