FELINE PRURITUS: what’s new in diagnosis and management?
Feline pruritus can be very challenging to manage, due to the potential for severe self trauma, and challenges of medicating many cats. Accurate diagnosis is always the first important step, and in this webinar we will cover practical tips when to consider infectious causes such as dermatoyphtosis or Demodex gatoi, how and when to use elimination diet trials, when to consider flea allergy, and the value of allergy testing (serum & intradermal). Step two is focusing on treatment, and along with updates on current treatment options, guidelines will be given on how to make wise treatment choices for each patient, and how to manage severely pruritic presentations while completing diagnostic trials.
