A cost conscious approach to the pruritic dog

The Potters Heron Hotel, Ampfield, Romsey Hampshire, SO51 9ZF

This course will also host the BSAVA Southern Annual Regional Meeting

Pruritus is one of the most common and yet frustrating conditions faced by vets in primary care practice. Although there are now many new diagnostic tests and therapeutic regimes available for the management of canine atopic dermatitis they can be prohibitively expensive for some owners. This evening lecture will discuss how the investigation and therapy of the allergic dog can be undertaken successfully with a low cost budget.

Learning objectives:
- learn the most important differential diagnoses for pruritus in the dog.
- learn how to make a diagnosis of canine atopic dermatitis.
- learn the difference between foundation and supplementary therapy in  allergic skin disease
- appreciate how to put together a low cost treatment regime for an owner on a limited budget
