Diagnose and manage a wide range of dermatological conditions with confidence, and enjoy those skin consults. Why be flustered when you can flourish?
Skin conditions are common in companion animal practice. The underlying cause varies and may be complex, even in animals with similar clinical presentations such as pruritis or hair loss.
Dermatology consultations will remain frustrating – for veterinarians and clients alike – if you always simply reach for the same treatment without identifying and addressing the underlying cause (or causes). This course equips you to develop a logical approach to the diagnosis and management of skin conditions.
This has been a challenging yet thoroughly enjoyable course that has enabled me to approach my dermatology cases in a much more systematic way. The tutors have been truly brilliant and so willing to help in any way.
