An allergic workup is key to reduce itch in dogs and control infection long-term. Identifying the underlying cause of pruritus is essential to minimize the severity and frequency of infections. This leads to less resistant bacteria in our patients and reduction in systemic medications over the lifetime of the pet.
In this episode of the podcast, I’m joined by Dr. Jennifer Schissler, DVM, MS, DACVD. We discuss the canine allergic workup and the importance of communication to owners of allergic pets.
