Gross dermatology images educate clients

VETERINARY MEDICINE


Dr. Brett Wildermuth, DACVD
I take digital photos of cytologic exam and skin scraping findings (bacteria, mites) through one eyepiece of the microscope by using the camera's macro setting. Then I show the photos to clients in the exam room. This pictorial representation of the high numbers of "gross" bacteria drives home the necessity for antibiotic therapy and reduces complaints about antibiotic costs.
