Is it a flea allergy? Food allergy? Feline atopic syndrome? All of the above? Once we figure out which etiology of allergic skin disease we’re working with, how do we determine the most appropriate therapeutic intervention with the limited options available for feline patients? This session will focus on key points of diagnosing and managing the difficult feline patient with head and neck manifestations of allergy.
