Skin problems are a common concern for pet owners and can significantly impact an animal's quality of life. To help veterinary teams be prepared to help these patients, we have compiled a list of must-read articles focusing on dermatology from our speakers at the 2024 Fetch dvm360 Conference in Charlotte, North Carolina, last month. From how to better utilize the whole team in dermatology cases to using topical therapies to manage dermatology cases, there is a variety of useful information to put into practice.

  • Using topical therapies to manage dermatologic cases: When it comes to managing allergy-associated skin conditions, veterinary professionals may include topical therapies as an adjunctive treatment in a multimodal case. Julia Miller, DVM, DACVD, gave an overview of the different options for treating skin conditions in pets with allergies as well as key considerations.
  • Save time in dermatology appointments by utilizing your technicians: It is important to get a compressive and thorough history of the patient to help determine what could be causing their dermatology issue. During her lecture, Joya Griffin, DVM, DACVD, explained how teams can enlist their technicians to collect the history to not only utilize the full team properly but free up some time for the veterinarian as well.
  • Combining forces: How general practitioners can work with dermatologists: When a client presents with a dermatological condition such as severely allergic disease, acute-onset skin disease, or chronic otitis externa, it can be time for a general practitioner to refer the patient to dermatology, making effective collaboration between GPs and specialist crucial to the patient and client. Miller explained the importance of dermatology referrals and how specialists and GPs can work together in her recent lecture from Fetch Charlotte.
