Seborrhea in dogs can be caused by underlying skin disease or by a primary skin defect. While not life-threatening, the odor and appearance can make it very difficult to find a home for even the friendliest, most appealing dog. What can shelters and foster homes do to resolve this condition in dogs they're caring for?
Join Clinical Associate Professor of Dermatology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. Karen Moriello, as she presents a free webcast, Stopping the Scales, Greasiness, and Odor of Seborrhea in Shelter and Foster Home Dogs.
This is the third in a four-part series on veterinary dermatology by Dr. Moriello, who will focus on how best to manage the skin, ears and odor of seborrhea.
