Veterinary Dermatology

Animals are susceptible to hundreds of skin disorders. Some skin tumours, such as scc, can be treated using cryotherapy or medical therapy. Others, such as epitheliotrophic lymphoma, can be treated with chemotherapy. Otitis externa is a common manifestation of allergic skin disease, but may also be associated with middle ear infections or tumours of the ear canal. Primary secretory Otitis Media is a recently recognised disease that affects Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. They have a characteristic bulging of the tympanic membrane into the distal aspect of the horizontal ear canal. Treatment for this condition is the surgical placement of grommets or ventilation tubes in the ear drum to allow equalisation of pressure and drainage of the sterile mucous-like fluid into the nasopharynx via the Eustachian tube. Severe anaphylactic reactions due to bee and wasp stings are rare, but potentially fatal to pets.

62% of US households now own a companion animal excluding horses, equating to 72.9 million homes. Many other countries are witnessing higher than ever rates of companion animal ownership, including emerging markets such as Brazil, China, India, Mexico, and Russia. Spending on companion animals is also continuing to increase. In the USA, spending has increased from a total of US$23 billion in 1988 to an estimated US$51 billion in 2011. Around 25% of this spending was on veterinary care including medicines and a further 20% on over-the-counter products and supplies, with the remainder on food, accessories etc.
