Build your expertise and make essential decisions that have a real life impact on the treatment and recovery of your patients.

Up to 30% of patients coming into a general practice will be suffering from a skin condition. This is not surprising, since the skin is the largest organ in the body.

Frances will knowledgeably guide you step-by-step, giving you the underpinning information on skin anatomy which can then be applied to understanding the effects of various skin problems.

Ectoparasites are covered in detail, with a host of illustrative photographs.

Fungal and bacterial infections are described along with methods of identifying and treating the infections.

Specific skin diseases, such as auto-immune disease and keratinisation disorders, are discussed to give you a depth of dermatological knowledge.

Endocrine disease is also included as many systemic diseases can affect overall skin health.

At the end of the course you will have both the intellectual and practical knowledge to carry out dermatology consults, collect samples, examine samples under the microscope and help plan a treatment modality with the veterinarian.

Sample forms are provided for client questionnaires, follow up appointments and a variety of other situations.

Finally, a bibliography of helpful texts is provided so that you have further references to fall back on.
