Does the thought of an itchy cat in your consulting room throw you into a flat spin? Do you assume it's fleas? Do you reach for the bottle of depomedrol and hope they come back to see someone else? What about those other weird skin lesions that cats get? How do I work out what's wrong and keep the owner happy and the patient comfortable?

In this webinar, we will discuss the best methods for approaching Dermatology in the cat including ruling out flea allergy, how to perform an elimination diet that owners can actually do, and how to make sure that there isn't anything else going on to complicate the issue (yes, cats do get pyoderma!). We'll talk about how to build a diagnostic plan for the patient and keep the owner on side, as well as the therapeutic options for managing conditions such as infections and atopy.
