About the course

Alopecia is a relatively common problem in dogs and usually results from self-inflicted damage to the hairs from scratching and/or chewing. Alopecic conditions that are not pruritic are more rarely seen and they can be difficult to diagnose. This lecture will present a methodical approach to these cases and will discuss the diseases causing non-pruritic alopecia in more detail including their etiology, presentation, diagnosis, and treatment.
