For Pet Parents!
Staying up all night with an itchy dog or cat can be very frustrating for you and even more frustrating for the pet.
The Canadian Academy of Veterinary Dermatology (CAVD) has partnered up with Royal Canin, Zoetis and CEVA Animal Health to initiate the ‘Empathy for Itch’, awareness and education campaign.
The goal of this campaign is to enhance awareness of what is normal and when to seek veterinary care for early medical treatment with the emphasis on ‘Itchy pet, see your vet’; and to share tools and handouts to assist you and your veterinary team in dealing with your allergic pets.

Being Itchy Can Really Stink!
Dermatology issues can be sneaky! Some issues can start very mild and quickly flare out of control causing your pet to be uncomfortable. As part of our campaign, we want to help you be better able to notice a change early on, and feel empowered to contact your pet’s veterinary team for support. So you can keep your pet living their best life! Take a peek at some mild cases and hover over the images to learn more!
