    Itchy Pet Awareness Month and Insights to Elevate the Derm Experience for Patients & Pet Owners

    It’s that time of year again – we’re happy to be outside, enjoy the nice weather, and make the most of the extra sunshine. But for many dogs, this is the time of year when their allergies really flare up and veterinarians see more cases of canine allergic dermatitis and atopic dermatitis. What’s a busy practitioner to do? Tune in to this VetFolio Voice podcast to hear Dr. Jennifer Schissler and Dr. Cassi talk about the importance of using Itchy Pet Awareness Month to increase client education around canine allergic itch, discuss how the treatment for canine allergic dermatitis has changed over the last 10 years, and share why this is the perfect time to add a chewable medication for canine allergic itch to your arsenal! Their insights (as well as some Itchy Pet Awareness Month resources for veterinary practices) can help the veterinary health team get pumped for these dermatology cases and prepare the team to elevate the dermatology experience for patients and their pet owners – during allergy season and beyond.

    Parallel Prescriptions: Comparing Human and Animal Healthcare

    Parallel Prescriptions: Comparing Human and Animal Healthcare

    Siblings can provide support, love and a sense of belonging that differs from any other relationship a person has. That’s certainly true of Dr. Cassi, DVM and host of the VetFolio Voice podcast, and Dr. Lisa M. Hayes, DO, a pediatric specialist and Dr. Cassi’s sister. In this VetFolio Voice episode, the two sisters chat about the similarities between human and veterinary medicine. Tune in to this unique episode as they explore the importance of a good history and physical examination, choosing targeted diagnostics to reach the correct diagnosis, and the pros and cons of specialization in human and veterinary medicine. While there are differences in their chosen medical fields, these sisters have a shared love of internal medicine, as well as a shared personality trait — constantly questioning and digging into complex medical presentations to get to the root cause and establish a definitive diagnosis.

May need a new mic

Great resources! But I will say, it sounds like they’re recording on an old Nokia phone inside of a cave sometimes.
