Diagnosing and Managing Dogs with Cutaneous Adverse Food Reaction (CAFR) with Dr. Jeff Tinsley | VETgirl Veterinary Continuing Education Podcasts
In today’s VETgirl podcast, we interview Dr. Jeff Tinsley from the Animal Dermatology Clinic about how to diagnose and manage dogs with cutaneous adverse food reaction (CAFR). Skin and gastrointestinal (GI) issues are among the most common problems bringing dogs to the veterinary hospital—in fact, a recent clinic survey revealed that nearly 40% of dogs visit the veterinarian because of one of these two complaints—or in some cases both. Do you know what specific clinical signs and patient history typically suggest that you’re dealing with a dog with adverse food reactions? What step-by-step diagnostic workup is warranted to rule in or rule out an adverse food reaction? And tune in to find out the most common mistakes made when starting an elimination diet trial!
