The LSU School of Veterinary Medicine (LSU SVM) recently hosted a veterinary dermatology workshop entitled “Dermatology: Pruritus Plus”. The seminar, which was held on November 6, discussed pruritus in dogs and cats, and included updates on some of the newest information in the world of small animal veterinary dermatology. Food allergies, flea allergy, the atopic state and glucocorticoids were also covered during the workshop.

Participating instructors included Dr. Sandra R. Merchant, veterinarian and professor of veterinary dermatology at LSU SVM, Drs. Kristen Fulham and Stephen Lemarie, dermatologists with Southeast Veterinary Specialists, and others.
