A diagnosis in veterinary dermatology can be made in 1 of 3 ways – a positive test, response to therapy or based on clinical experience. There are several skin diseases that present with classical clinical signs which can help the veterinarian narrow down the list of differentials and decide the best confirmatory test. This presentation will discuss several canine (and feline) dermatologic cases enabling veterinarians to recognize the condition in their own patients. Diagnostics and therapies will also be touched on.
