As the seasons change, so might your dog’s grooming needs. It’s important to take care of your pooch’s fur, skin, paws and nails year round, and cooler temperatures bring about some special considerations.
This case based presentation will introduce a series of common but challenging feline skin diseases with a focus on developing a list of differential diagnoses and indicated diagnostic tests. Results, treatment plan, follow up and a discussion of each condition will then be reviewed. The lecture will conclude with practical tips (not limited by species) for general practitioners to apply everyday in their approach to management of patients with otic and dermatologic conditions.
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!

Please RSVP to our next LearnDerm Event! July 19th at 6:30pm
Dr. Rosenberg and Dr. Budgin attended the North American Veterinary Dermatology Forum in Maui this past April. They attended many lectures as well as the Diplomate Dinner for all boarded dermatologists. Was a great week spent in Maui with lots of sunshine!
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.
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.
Our next LearnDerm event is around the corner! Looking forward to seeing you there!
