We're back with another dermatological dilemma we confront (nearly) every day: the itching dog!

Atopy, insect bite, and food allergies fill our schedules, challenge our teams, and frustrate everyone (especially the poor pet suffering from incessant itching)! This week we're joined by veterinary dermatologist Dr. Candace Sousa. She shares her insights and advice on diagnosing and treating itchy dogs, as well as the latest trends and tips in testing and treatment. Host veterinarians Ernie Ward and Cyndie Courtney have a wide-ranging conversation that will help any veterinary practice more confidently diagnose and treat itching patients.
