Lecture Summary

Topic 1: Cases That Make Your Skin Crawl: A Case Based Discussion on Challenging Dermatology Cases

Dr. Senter will present ten challenging and interesting dermatology cases and will outline the history, detailed diagnostic steps, and treatment protocols for each case.

Topic 2: Apoquel™ Dos and Don’ts

Apoquel is a great new tool in veterinary dermatology, but it is often used inappropriately. In this lecture, we will discuss how to use this medication safely, summarize the pros and cons to its use both acutely and chronically, discuss cases showing both positive and negative effects of this drug, and give tips on deciding when and when not to use it.

He has had extensive training in dermatopathology, and interprets most of his own biopsies. Although, the majority of his patients are dogs, cats, and horses, Dr. Senter is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of skin diseases of all domestic animals.
