About this course

What next for an itchy dog with atopic dermatitis that is not doing well enough on treatment? 

Canine atopic dermatitis is recognised as having significant impact on welfare over the lifetime of a patient. Whilst the general principles of treatment of canine atopic dermatitis have remained unchanged, the major advances in the treatment options for pruritus and inflammation associated with this disease in recent years have therefore been a welcome development. Yet the wealth of treatment choices can feel confusing, and satisfactory control of the disease remains a challenge in some patients. This webinar will propose approaches to the itchy dog that is not doing well enough on treatment.

You will learn to recognise when a change of approach is needed, to identify factors that prevent adequate control of pruritus and to choose therapeutic strategies to address those factors.

A convenient and flexible way to earn some CPD hours without leaving home is to select webinars to view from our extensive library of recorded webinars. They are great value for busy practitioners seeking quality CPD at a time of their choice.
