Dr. Jeanne Budgin Speaks at West Milford Library

Dr. Jeanne Budgin and the doctors of Riverdale Veterinary Dermatology provided a public education program at West Milford Library entitled "Let's Talk Itchy Pets" on Thursday, October 10th. This popular continuing education seminar series is organized and supported by Greenwood Lake Animal Hospital. After Dr. Budgin discussed how dogs and cats itch in different ways, as well as the many causes of itch in pets including parasites, allergies, and skin and ear infections, Drs. Loewinger and Rosenberg answered questions from the audience. It was a fun and interactive night for all and we would like to acknowledge Greenwood Lake for providing the opportunity!

Calling All Itchy Dogs!!

Do you have an itchy dog who suffers from environmental allergies? 

If so, your dog may be a candidate to participate in a new study investigating the efficacy of CBD oil on alleviating itch in dogs with atopic dermatitis. 

Perks for your dog: Free physical exams, skin cytology, bloodwork, and the discovery of a potentially effective new treatment to help control their itch

Perks for you: $100 Amazon Gift Card on successful completion of the four weeklong study

To be a potential candidate, your dog must:

Have been previously diagnosed with environmentally allergies (pollen, dust, etc).

Have been through an appropriate elimination diet to rule out a food allergy. If your dog has both food and environmental allergies, the food allergy must be controlled with an appropriate hypoallergenic diet. 

Be somewhat itchy at time of study with room for potential improvement.

What would the study involve?

Administration of a CBD capsule or a placebo to your dog twice daily for 4 weeks. You can give it in food! 

Your dog would receive three physical exams: week 0, week 2, and week 4, as well as other diagnostic testing free of charge. We would perform bloodwork and skin biopsies at weeks 0 and 4. 

Please contact Dr. Melissa Loewinger at Animal Dermatology and Allergy Specialists in Riverdale, NJ and White Plains, NY if you are interested in finding out if your dog is a candidate for the study or if you would like more information.

Dr. Rosenberg Speaks at the Russian American Veterinary Conference (RAVC) in Sochi, Russia

Dr. Rosenberg lectured on Itchy Dogs and other dermatology topics at a three day conference in Sochi, Russia. With simultaneous translators, attendees could listen to him via headpiece. It was a wonderful opportunity to meet international members of the veterinary community and see the development of the new hospital in Sochi, Russia. Until now there has not been a central Veterinary hospital in the area. Dr. Rosenberg had a great time meeting all of the attendees.

We recently had the pleasure of working with Paula Krenkel, President of Pet Rescue, on a very special pet's skin conditions- Lilliana. Paula took incredible care of Lilliana before ultimately finding her a new home where her new owner was aware and ready to treat her skin conditions. We are so excited for both pet and owner and know they will bring each other so much joy! 

"Pet Rescue's mission is to aid homeless, abandoned and neglected cats and dogs, to nurture them in the foster care of volunteers, to provide veterinary care and socialization, and to place them in permanent loving and responsible homes. Pet Rescue also works to decrease the population of homeless dogs and cats through its spay/neuter programs."

Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. Budgin Lecture at the West Milford Township Library

 

Dr.Rosenberg and Dr. Budgin had a great turnout Wednesday May 23rd at their lecture at the West Milford Township library!   Thank you to Greenwood Lake Animal Hospital for hosting and organizing this great event! Here are some notes and photos from the evening. 

Dr. Budgin and Dr. Rosenberg busted 8 top veterinary myths. Here is a quick summary:
1) Raw and grain free diets are NOT good for your pets.
2) Coconut oil does NOT heal pet dermatological issues.
3) You CANNOT blood test for food or other allergies.
4) Flea and tick preventatives MUST be used year-round.
5) Bathing IS good for your itchy pet once a week with the right shampoo.
6) Online pharmacies are UNRELIABLE sources for purchasing medication. Manufacturers do not sell directly to online pharmacies.
7) Licking paws IS a sign of allergies. (Pets lick their paws because they cannot scratch paws).
8) Steroids used short term are GOOD when appropriately administered by your Veterinarian.

 

Dr. Budgin becomes Fear Free Certified!

The Fear Free initiative promotes considerate approach and gentle control techniques used in calming environments. Utilization of Fear Free methods and protocols leads to reduction of fear, stress and anxiety triggers creating an experience that is more comforting and rewarding for all involved including pets, their caretakers and veterinary health care teams. To become certified, veterinarians and veterinary staff are required to complete a comprehensive, 8-part educational course and exam. They also have to take continuing education to remain certified.
