We are all struggling with cats

Managing allergic skin and ear disease in cats is actually really hard. And, there are several reasons for this. Cats are mysterious. And, our knowledge of their atopic illness barely scratches the surface.

Updates have been made to our understanding of Feline Atopic Skin Syndrome (thank you ICADA 2021), but we have a long way to go! This course serves as a way to honor what we know about this majestic species – and provide a framework to our clinical practice when we see an itchy cat on our schedule.

Here we review the basics of Feline Atopic Skin Syndrome and the updates to terminology from 2021. This is a solid review that we all need.

This module will really help you understand the WHY of Feline Atopic Skin Syndrome. This is a practical and clinically-oriented review.

clinical signs image


I cover it all in this module – a review of the four main cutaneous reaction patterns seen with FASS. And, a great review of feline otitis.

Diagnosis image


This module will review how to make the diagnosis of FASS. We discuss how to rule out flea allergy dermatitis, food allergy, and so much more! This is KEY.

Dr. Andrew Huffington - DVM, General Practice

“I am really impressed by how Dr. Painter takes a very complex topic and breaks it down so you can actually apply it in practice. Taking this course is way better than hearing a 50-min lecture at a conference. It actually sticks. Strongly encourage anyone in general practice to sign up”
