    Itchy Pet Awareness Month - Olive and Dog Allergies Information and Support Group

    August is Itchy Pet Awareness month. Many pet owners are not aware of veterinary dermatologists who can help. There are about 300 board certified veterinary dermatologists in the American College of Veterinary Dermatology who have undergone extensive training and completed research after veterinary school in order to specialize in the study of skin and ear disease, as well as allergies, immunology, and internal medicine. Petra Lee, of the Dog Allergies Information and Support Group, joins us to talk about how she discovered a veterinary dermatologist for her dog, Olive, and how she is advocating partnership between owners of allergic dogs and veterinarians.

    052 Ringworm

    052 Ringworm

    No, it’s not actually a worm. This fungal infection of the skin is most commonly seen in young kittens and puppies. Certain breeds, such as Yorkshire Terriers and Persian cats, and older animals whose immune systems are compromised can be at risk for ringworm. This infection can be spread to people who come in contact with these animals. Join Dr. Nellie Choi, veterinary dermatologist, to find out more about this skin infection, including what to watch for, how your veterinarian might test for it, and what they can do to treat it.

Wonderfully informative podcast

I am so grateful for this podcast! I’ve had two dogs with allergies and the allergy episodes from dermatology vets have been so useful. She also weaves stories and examples in which help make a potentially dry topic really interesting. But Dr. Lancelotti didn’t stop at skin issues! She has episodes about other veterinary topics like toxins and how to decide when your dog’s quality of life is no longer good enough (that one helped me personally, a lot) and just so many other useful topics for dog and cat parents. Five stars!

Great resource for clients and FUN

As a small animal practitioner, I recommend these podcasts and the website at least once a day!

Frogdoc3 ,

Amazing resource!

As a veterinarian I recommend this podcast to clients several times weekly. The episode on food allergies has been the most helpful for me, but they are all great. My daughter loved the one on Guinea pigs-she is a Guinea pig lover and feels everyone should know how to care for these creatures! Please keep up the fantastic work.
