Skin punch

A skin punch is suitable for a quick, precise biopsy and is performed by the veterinarian or veterinary practitioner.

After the corresponding skin area has been sufficiently disinfected, a standardised skin sample is cut out with the help of a punching tool, a sharp, ring-shaped knife with a diameter of 6 mm. Local anaesthesia is usually sufficient for taking the sample. The veterinarian or veterinary naturopathic practitioner then sends the removed skin sample to an institute that specialises in the examination of such animal skin samples.

For more information, consult a veterinarian or veterinary practitioner.
