I am joined by Dr. Melissa Hall, DVM, Dip ACVD from Metropolitan Animal Specialty Hospital (Los Angeles, CA) to discuss pemphigus foliaceus. This is one of the more common cutaneous autoimmune diseases diagnosed in cats and dogs. It can be an incredibly rewarding disease to manage, but also a very frustrating one.
Dr. Hall and I cover the clinical signs, how to successfully diagnose with cytology and biopsy, and treatment options for dogs and cats with pemphigus foliaceus. It is a fun conversation about a disease process you may see in your clinic!
