Agnès Delauche, senior brand manager at Novartis, said: “Research carried out by Novartis has shown that 86 per cent of owners whose dogs were diagnosed with atopic dermatitis were frustrated with the condition. In addition, 44 per cent of owners left their original veterinary surgeon in search of a solution for their dog’s atopy. It can be a long and exasperating problem for both the dog and the owner, so it’s critical that a timely diagnosis and effective treatment regime are provided. We hope that the expertise and vast experience of our speakers will assist veterinary professionals in managing this condition.” The evening sessions count for two hours of CPD and begin at 8pm, with a finger buffet available from 7.30pm. The seminars commence in April with Dr Tim Nuttall:Followed by further dates with Dr Stephen Shaw:Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-serve basis, so to secure a place, contact Lynsey Greggain on +44 207 424 3370.
