WSVMA DVM: Masterclass Webinar – Managing the Allergic Patient

  |   Continuing Education

Join us Tuesday, Jan. 19 at 12pm for our webinar Managing the Allergic Patient. Dr. Heather Edginton will be our guest speaker, and in this lecture, she’ll look at how to accurately diagnose and treat cat and dog allergies. She will go over the differences in treatment options between the two species and also examine what can be done in extreme cases of allergies that are not responding to common treatment modalities. Also, Dr. Edginton will discuss common and uncommon ways allergies can manifest.

Dr. Heather Edginton is a board-certified veterinary Dermatologist. Born and raised in Pasadena, California, Dr. Edginton was originally a Psychology major and obtained her Psychology Degree from Cal State Long Beach. However, something was missing in her life and she couldn’t shake the feeling that she needed to work with animals. Dr. Edginton decided to change her major, attending Cornell University to study veterinary medicine. She earned her Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine in 2011 where she discovered her passion for veterinary dermatology. Dr. Edginton began her residency at Cornell University to work on getting her board-certification in dermatology, which she completed in 2014. Her specialty interests include management of allergic skin disease, immune-mediated/autoimmune skin diseases, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
