Lab of Small Animal Diseases

The topics investigated in this lab are mainly categorized into four systems: skin diseases, endocrine disorders, acquired cardiopulmonary disorders, and infectious diseases. All studies and investigations are based on the client-owned clinical cases, no experimental animals are ever involved in investigation in this lab. Atopic dermatitis and ectoparasitic diseases are the major streams in the dermatological investigation. Disorders of adrenal and thyroid glands, as well as endocrine pancreatic diseases are the major streams in the studies of endocrinopathies. Blood pressure associated cardiac disorders and application of 2D speckle-tracking echocardiography are the key studies in the cardiopulmonary disorders. Epidemiology of helicobacter and babesiosis are the major topics in infectious diseases.
