Dealing with immune-mediated skin disease in dogs and cats
During this webinar we will discuss the clinical features, diagnosis and management of the most common immune-mediated diseases that we are likely to see in small animal practice. We'll find out what clues to look for when these cases are presented, what questions to ask of owners, and what diagnostic tools are required to make a definitive diagnosis. We will look at treatment options for the diseases and the drugs that we commonly use for their management. We will also cover what to expect in terms of response to therapy, and discuss when it might be best to refer a case. Specifically we will address the following conditions: discoid lupus erythematosus in dogs, pemphigus foliaceus in dogs and cats, alopecia areata, canine uveodermatologic syndrome, cutaneous adverse drug reaction, orythema multiforme. We will also briefly discuss some rarer presentations that we might see including: other forms of cutaneous lupus, other forms of pemphigus, autoimmune sub-epidermal blistering diseases, toxic epidermal necrolysis, vasculitis syndromes, auricular chondritis.
