Elanco’s new dermatology e-newsletter focuses on fleas
Elanco Companion Animal Health has launched the second issue of its informative dermatology e-newsletter ‘Under The Skin’, which focuses on fleas and the problem of flea infestations.
The e-newsletter will refresh the knowledge of veterinary professionals by reviewing the lifecycle of a flea and looking at a recent and highly readable overview of fleas and their role as parasite and vector. Dr Peri Lau-Gillard DerMedVet CertVD DipECVD MRCVS, European Specialist in Veterinary Dermatology, will once again be guest editor and other interesting topics covered include ‘seasonal treatment or year round prevention’, ‘treatment failure – what to consider when the fleas are still alive’, ‘tips and tricks – flea combing and faecal examination for fleas’ and information on spinosad, the active ingredient in Comfortis®.
There is also the opportunity to watch the recent ‘real world flea control’ webinar presented by renowned flea expert, Dr Mike Dryden, together with a film demonstrating the effect of treatment with a Comfortis tablet on adult fleas.
The flea theme will be continued in issue three of Under The Skin as Elanco takes a closer look at the flea’s role in allergic skin disease and how to manage these sometimes complex and frustrating cases.
