Seminar Topics:

 

The Multimodal Approach to Managing the Itchy Dog

Part I – Approach and Newer Therapies 

Several studies show that pruritus is the number one reason a client brings their dog to the veterinarian. Allergic skin diseases are common problems in canine patients, and many of the clinical presentations are similar which can make these cases frustrating. This lecture will focus on the allergic workup and newer therapies for the fast treatment of pruritus.

Part II- Where to the older treatments fit in

Where do corticosteroids, cyclosporine and Allergen Specific Therapy fit in for the management of atopic dermatitis. With the availability and success seen with the newer therapies there is still a need for our traditional therapies. Find out where and when to rely on these options.

How to conquer the itchy cat 

Different categories of feline allergies can be difficult to differentiate from one another.  Understanding the different patterns of cutaneous lesions, response to treatment, and management of secondary issues is important for control. This lecture will present how to differentiate and perform a diagnostic workup for flea, food, and environmental allergies in cats.  

Using your tools to appropriately diagnose otitis 

Managing difficult otitis externa cases in cats and dogs can be challenging, chronic, and frustrating. This lecture will discuss a complete approach to the diagnostic workup of otitis externa including cytology, culture and sensitivity, handheld otoscopy, and video otoscopy.

From ear drops to pills: how to effectively treat otitis externa and media 

Choosing appropriate ear cleansers and initial therapeutics can be imperative in defeating micro-organisms. However, systemic therapy can also be used to help alleviate discomfort and treat infection in complicated cases. This is especially true when disease extends deeper than the external ear canal. This lecture will address how to assess the best treatment plan for every type of otitis case from a simple yeast otitis to a resistant otitis media.

Don’t fear the smear (basics of cytology) 

Cytology is one of the most important diagnostic tools in dermatology.  A quick, inexpensive test that can be essential in diagnosing and managing various skin diseases.  This lecture will discuss what different findings of cells, organisms and structures may indicate.  Also, techniques for collecting and interpreting cytologies from different anatomical sites will be discussed.

Canine Geriatric Dermatology- “Learn from the Geriatric Dermatologist” 

Skin disease in geriatric dogs can include a variety of infectious conditions, immune mediated diseases, metabolic diseases and neoplasia. The predisposition to infectious conditions likely reflects their ageing systemic and cutaneous immune function and development of other immunosuppressive primary diseases such as hyperadrenocorticism and hypothyroidism.

Canine parasites and pruritus – “Looking good when you identify and treat these diseases !” 

When it comes to parasitic causes of pruritus, an accurate history and physical exam are critical. This lecture will examine clues to pay particular attention to when working up a dog with pruritus. Distribution patterns and key features of specific diseases, including scabies, demodicosis (localized and generalized), and flea allergy dermatitis, will be reviewed. Diagnostic techniques and treatments (both traditional and newer) for these diseases will be explored, using photographic examples and case studies to highlight results of therapy
