756. Adopting dog with skin disease - vet cost

I am Dr Sing. It is best to adopt a dog with no skin disease. As for vet costs, it depends on what is the cause of the skin disease and prices vary from $60 to over $200 for complicated skin disease cases.

I have an enquiry to make and would really appreciate if you could help. I have decided to adopt a 6 months old Shetland sheepdog and border collie mix, but the breeder told me that he has skin problems, (he thinks it is fungus) on his back. I would like to know if I should wait for the wounds to heal before adopting it or i can adopt it and bring it to the vet for a check. If I were to bring the dog for a check at your veterinary, how much would it cost, ad how long would it take for the skin problem to recover?

Thank you,
