99. Sebaceous Adenitis
Sebaceous adenitis is an autoimmune disease that can cause scaling, follicular casting and hair loss in dogs. Standard Poodles, Vizslas and Akitas are predisposed. Learn how to recognize this disease, diagnose it through biopsy and the wide array of treatment options that are available.
98. Color Dilution Alopecia
Color dilution alopecia (CDA) is an inherited condition that causes patches of hair loss, and may also include flaky skin and pruritus. The condition is associated with individuals who have a “dilute” color, and is most commonly seen in dogs with a blue or fawn coat.
Learn about this interesting disease, how to diagnose it appropriately and manage it long-term.
97. Cytology collection techniques and staining
You always hear me mention "cytology everything"! But, how do you actually collect a diagnostic cytology sample?
Cytology is the minimum database of any dermatology case. So, it is important to find 2-3 techniques you feel comfortable with and become a PRO at them. From direct impression to tape to toothpick samples, get a step-by-step guide on the difference collection methods.

Derm for the win
As a GP vet in Australia, I see a lot of Derm cases . It’s often hard to find good CE on the subject but Dr Ashley’s podcasts are so easy and informative plus help me keep up to date with current info. I also like the mom stuff thrown in for good measure , it’s a part of life for a lot of us and it’s nice to combine the 2 aspects and see women who are doing both !
