Summary

There is so much information to absorb in school and when first starting out in clinical practice. This makes it inherently known that some important information will not be covered or remembered due to the massive amount of data. In this program, we will discuss some practical tips which can help to provide success for your dermatology patients. Glucocorticoids inherently have a negative image due to some of their side effects, but this drug has great benefit when used in appropriate situations. Aural hematomas are a common sequelae of otitis externa and there are a few different ways to manage this condition based on the presentation. Commercially prepared medications have been thoroughly studied in order to show their stability and efficacy. Compounded medications are rarely evaluated to the same scrutiny, yet are commonly used as replacements. Evidence based medicine should guide your usage of compounded medications rather than purely due to decreased cost. One of the most common skills that we use in life is communication and this is extremely important for veterinary dermatology due to the chronicity of our cases. We will discuss the importance of communication as well as some clinically practical tips to help your patients.
