Skin Care and Common Diseases: The Health Care you Need for the Animals in Your Care

Thursday, March 08, 2018 11:30 am–3:30 pm Spanish Suite

We all have the chance to improve the lives of the animals in our care and a great way to do so is recognizing common skin issues and general diseases.  Some diseases are more common than others and in many cases, groomers are the first line of defense in identifying disease in animals. Dr. Kohles will cover how to recognize common bacteria, fungus, viruses, creepy crawlers (ectoparasites) and how to best care for them without crossing the line into veterinarian territory.  He will also review some of the more common diseases seen in our client’s pets and their impact on skin and coat health. This seminar will have pictures to help visualize these common issues and Dr. Kohles will discuss common treatments and therapies.
