Tips, Techniques & Treatments for Common Dermatologic Conditions in the Dog and Cat

Presented by: Mitzi Clark, DVM, DACVD

This lecture will discuss diagnostic testing and treatment for a variety of skin diseases in the dog and cat. Focusing on skin disease caused by ectoparasites, allergy, bacterial and fungal infections, we will highlight in-house diagnostic testing for these conditions (such as impression cytology, deep and superficial skin scrapings, and DTM collection). We will also discuss diagnostic testing such as skin biopsies and bacterial and fungal cultures and when these tests are most appropriate. Finally, we will use a variety of case scenarios to highlight treatment options for these disorders.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Be comfortable with the minimum dermatology data base and techniques for performing these in-house tests.
  2. Be able to prioritize diagnostic testing based on various clinical presentations of dermatologic conditions in the dog and cat.
  3. Be familiar with current treatment options for a variety of common skin conditions in the dog and cat.
