Many dermatoses in dogs and cats are recurrent, and effective management can be difficult and provide great frustration to both owners and veterinarians.
Led by renowned Dr. Linda Vogelnest, this online course is designed to cover a broad range of the most common dermatological problems faced in general practice in both dogs and cats and reinforce a practical, logical, problem orientated approach to skin disease.
A common tendency is to reach for blanket symptomatic treatments as one of the first options, without too much consideration of the most likely underlying diseases or other more guided treatment options. Following a logical diagnostic approach to disease, even when potential for diagnostic testing is limited, will often guide more effective case management; and this course aims to give many practical tips on how to achieve this. A range of case examples will be individually worked through, to reinforce the theory and tips provided.
