May 26, 2022
Whether you think they’re creepy or cool, parasites are a daily occurrence in the veterinary field so it’s important to be able to collect, identify, and treat them and here’s why:
- Parasites can cause disease states in our companion animals.
- Parasites can serve as vectors of diseases
- Parasites and pets with parasites can serve as sentinels for human disease
In this session, attendees will learn the fundamentals necessary for diagnosis, identification, and management of common canine ectoparasites including but not limited to mange (sarcoptes and demodicosis), fleas, ticks, lice, and ear mites. Attendees will also learn the fundamentals of common dermatology diagnostic techniques including skin scrapes, tape preps, and cytology necessary for identification and diagnosis of these parasites.

Brian Alexander Scott
Born in Charlotte, NC and raised in NC, FL and Wisconsin. After high school in Wisconsin I headed south and attended Auburn University. After graduation and a short time at the Veterinary School pursuing my Master’s degree in Reproductive Endocrinology, I sold veterinary pharmaceuticals for E.R. Squibb and Sons for 3 years prior to entering Veterinary Medical School. After receiving my Veterinary degree I founded and maintained an AAHA general practice in Lake Mary, Florida for 24 years. After achieving Board Certification in Veterinary Dermatology I moved to San Antonio, Texas as the Director of South Texas Veterinary Allergy and Dermatology within the South Texas Veterinary Specialists for 4 ½ years. Upon returning to Florida I joined Animal Dermatology South and I was the Director of our office in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Currently I am working at Animal Dermatology Clinic - Bradenton in Bradenton, Florida. I am still volunteering my services to all military working dogs, consulting on cases worldwide and I still spend time bimonthly (when possible) on Lackland Airforce Base at the Daniel E. Holland Specialty Referral Hospital for military working animals. Having spent time as a territory manager for a large pharmaceutical company; owned and operated a companion animal practice for over 20 years; and now as a Board Certified Veterinary Dermatologist; I believe that I have a unique perspective on benefits that pharmaceutical representatives bring to the general and specialty veterinary practitioners. Speaking and teaching others about Veterinary Dermatology is a passion of mine and I have been privileged to have been invited to speak/teach across the United States and abroad. Interacting with veterinarians, and technicians at their practices, in small groups or in large meetings are all things that I enjoy.
