Canine Atopic Dermatitis: Updates on Diagnosis and Treatment

Canine atopic dermatitis is a common skin disorder defined as a hereditary predisposition to develop pruritic inflammatory skin disease associated with IgE antibodies, which typically target environmental allergens. The disease typically affects dogs age 6 months to 3 years and is characterized by pruritus and secondary skin lesions of a characteristic distribution around the face (mouth, eyes), concave aspect of the ear pinnae, ventral abdomen, flexor aspects of elbow, carpal, and tarsal joints, interdigital skin, and perineal area. This article will help practitioners determine which flare factors (or environmental conditions) are responsible for CAD.
