Pet food manufacturer Royal Canin is hosting two free webinars on canine dermatology for vets and vet nurses.
The first webinar, “Assessing Atopy”, will take place at 8.30pm on August 13 and will feature guest speaker UK veterinary dermatologist Stephen Shaw. Dr Shaw will share his practical approach to the itchy dog, demonstrating the diagnostic and management steps he always considers and best practice in setting up diet trials. Royal Canin’s Ian Williams will provide a review of the diets offered by the company and summarise the support materials accessible to veterinary practices.
On August 27 at 8.30pm, Massey University’s senior lecturer in small animal medicine Nick Cave will present “Assessing Allergy” with Royal Canin’s Lee Danks. Prof Cave will explore the best approach to food allergy cases and discuss the practical and systematic use of hydrolysed diets as a diagnostic tool. He’ll also talk about the long-term management solutions available for dogs with cutaneous adverse reactions to food, which also includes those showing gastrointestinal signs.
Mr Danks, Royal Canin’s scientific support manager, said: “With so many challenges and treatment options to consider, dermatology cases raise a number of questions when it comes to diagnostics and the selection of appropriate diets. These webinars will deliver expert opinion and practical guidance to vets and vet nurses, leaving them with a thorough understanding of best practice when it comes to making decisions in dermatology.”
Any vet or nurse interested in attending the webinar can register for free by visiting Royal Canin’s website. Participants will receive a CPD certificate that can be downloaded online.
