A Team Approach to Dermatology

 

NAVTA and Zoetis, the makers of APOQUEL® (oclacitinib tablet), SIMPATICO® (sarolaner) Chewables, CONVENIA® (cefovecin sodium) and CYTOPOINT®, have partnered to launch an online CE* course to introduce a team approach to dermatology - a course designed specifically for veterinary technicians to encourage interest in getting involved in the field of dermatology and facilitate a practice team approach to managing itchy dogs suffering from parasites, skin infections, and allergies including, food, flea or seasonal and atopic dermatitis.

 

As with many conditions, the diagnosis and management of itch can be trying for both the dog and dog owner. This program aims to empower the veterinary technician in the area of dermatology to help those suffering by: providing practical skills and techniques to collect, evaluate and record various dermatological samples during the diagnostic workup; present strategies on how to provide exceptional relationship-centered service and care before, during and after the diagnostic workup; provide strategies to champion relief for the itchy dog, peace of mind for their owner; and a team approach to dermatology within the practice.

 

The Team Approach to Dermatology Certification Program is now available at NAVTA’s CE portal, ce.navta.net. Don’t forget to follow NAVTA on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram!
