Allergic dermatitis offers a lot of difficulties and confusions for pet owners as well as vets due to its complexity – immune system aberration, physical changes of the epidermis, historical beliefs and newer facts as well as secondary changes which worsen the overall problem. In addition, as it is a chronic disease, cases may need veterinary attention for over 10 years. This needs very sound and clear communication between vet and owner as well as vet to vet, vet to nurses, vet to receptionists and vice versa.

This dermatology day aims to firstly provide a ‘red line’ to diagnose the major role players for the individual patient, secondly offer a concept for management, which treatment to use when, which is tailored specifically to each patient (and owner) and lastly discuss communication with pet owners and colleagues. Enabling delegates to go back to their practices not feeling frustrated or anxious about the next itchy patient, but empowered to ‘sort them out’!

Topics to be covered include:

  • Allergic work up (dogs versus cats)
  • How to get the most out of your food trial
  • Treating skin infections in the 21st century
  • Treatment modalities of atopic dermatitis
  • Unusual presentations of allergic skin disease
  • Otitis externa
