Autoimmune skin disease in dogs and cats

Date24.10.2018 (BST)
Time19:00 - 20:00 (BST)
SpeakerAndrew Leisewitz
€ 29,-
(excl. VAT)

This is a unique and less common disease in which the body’s own immune system turns on itself – in this case, components of the skin. We will discuss this disease in two broad categories, namely those diseases that are vesicular or pustular in nature and those diseases that are not characterised be vesicles or pustules. We will spend most of our discussion time on the most common aspects of this disease.

This webinar is organised in co-operation with the South African Vet Dermatology Interest Group, sponsored by Virbac South Africa, and facilitated by Vet360
