The Diagnostic Approach to the Pruritic Cat for Nurses
In this one-hour lecture, we will discuss the clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment of allergies in our feline friends. Allergic conditions in cats are common in small animal dermatology, but they remain challenging to diagnose given the multitude of clinical presentations. We will aim to streamline the workup of the allergic cat to allow an accurate diagnosis and a long-term, sustainable, targeted treatment plan.
