This course will combine lectures and interactive case-based sessions to build on delegates’ existing knowledge of ear and foot disease in dogs and cats, and equip them to deal confidently with these cases in their daily practice. It will include recent thinking on the parallels between chronic otitis and chronic pododermatitis, and some of the more unusual and/or controversial conditions of the feet and claws. The course will be relaxed in format, and delegate participation and questions will be welcomed! 

Topics to be covered

  • Current thinking on the pathogenesis, diagnosis and medical management of 
    • otitis externa/media 
    • pedal disease (including chronic canine pododermatitis, claw disease)
  • When is surgical intervention required and what can it achieve? 

Learning objectives

  • Manage cases of otic and pedal disease confidently, based on an up-to-date understanding of their pathogenesis and the available therapeutic options  
  • Decide when surgical intervention is required and understand the relative merits of the surgical options 
  • Recognise and manage some of the more unusual conditions affecting the feet of dogs and cats 

Required delegate attributes
