WSVMA DVM: Masterclass Webinar – Happy Pets and Happy Clients: Individualizing Care of the Atopic Dog

March 10, 2023

Join us Tuesday, Mar. 21, 2023 at 12pm for our webinar – Happy Pets and Happy Clients: Individualizing Care of the Atopic Dog with Dr. Valerie Fadok. In this webinar we will talk about the keys to success when managing atopic dermatitis. Keys to success are setting realistic expectations and providing our clients with quality information about the disease. We want to tailor our approach to each patient and client, while using the best medicine possible. We will introduce the concepts of anchor therapy, talk about how it relates to the multimodal approach, and emphasize the importance of regular rechecks to maximize success. We will use individual patients to illustrate how to design an effective long term management plan.

Valerie Fadok, DVM, PhD, DACVD, joined Zoetis in 2016 with the goal of helping veterinarians manage skin diseases with less frustration! She received her DVM from Washington State University in 1978, after which she did an internship in small animal medicine and surgery at the West Los Angeles Veterinary Medical Group. A residency in veterinary dermatology followed at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, and Dr. Fadok became board-certified in 1982. She earned a PhD in Experimental Pathology at the Unversity of Colorado Health Sciences center in 1991. Dr. Fadok has worked on faculty at University of Tennessee, the University of Florida, Texas A & M University, and National Jewish Health. Prior to joining Zoetis, she worked in private specialty practices in Denver, Colorado, and Houston, Texas. Dr. Fadok has lectured internationally, nationally, and locally on subjects relating to veterinary skin disease, immunology, and inflammation, and was a dermatology consultant on the Veterinary Information Network (VIN). Awards include the ACVD Award for Excellence (2010) and the Frank Kral Award (2018).
