FREE FOOD ALLERGY WEBINAR – GETTING THE BEST FROM DIET TRIALS.

Presented by Dr Tim Nuttall, BSc, BVSc, CertVS, Phd, CBiol, MRSB, MRCVS

DATE: Friday 21st April at 1pm

This webinar will review the developed awareness of adverse food reactions and how these affect the skin. It seems that adverse food reactions are relatively common in atopic animals and probably underdiagnosed. Unfortunately, we’ve also learned that they are more complex than first thought; recognition, diagnosis and management of adverse food reactions can be challenging. This webinar will discuss the following:

  • Defining food allergy syndromes
  • Clinical features of adverse food reactions
  • Selecting appropriate foods using history, serology and other tests
  • How best to follow up diet trials
  • Hidden allergens in foods, novel foods and food cross-reaction
  • How hydrolysed does a food need to be?
  • The role of the gut microbiome and probiotics

We’ll present the latest evidence and do some myth-busting along the way!

This webinar is suitable for both vets and nurses that deal with food-allergic animals and their owners. To sign-up for the webinar, please click HERE

MANAGING THE PRURITIC DOG AND CAT IN THE LIGHT OF THE LATEST RESEARCH: DON’T FORGET THE BASICS FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS.

Presented by Professor Richard Halliwell, MA, VetMB, phD, DECVD, MRCVS

DATE: Thursday 21st April at 1pm

                  Webinar article 1      Webinar article 3      Webinar article 2

This webinar will first review the spectacular advances made in the past few years in our understanding of the pathways that initiate the sensation of itch. In particular the demonstration that interleukin-31 (IL-31) plays a pivotal role was truly ground-breaking, and has led to the development of new products to target this molecule – one already released and others either on the drawing board or undergoing clinical trials in dogs and people. The mode and site of action of these and other older therapeutic products will be described. But the clinician must be careful to use such products in the correct context. To ensure the best clinical outcomes, a structured basic diagnostic approach in essential before deciding on the preferred treatment options. Such an approach will be described for both the dog and cat. To sign-up for the webinar, please click HERE
