The National Service Dog Dermatology Survey
The National Service Dog Dermatology Survey is currently underway. It has been developed by Helen Orbell and Craig Griffin of Animal Dermatology Clinic, NZ (http:www.animaldermclinic.co.nz) and by Vicki Erceg of the Working Dog Centre .
The survey will be a useful tool to help recognise dogs with health issues such as skin, gastrointestinal, ear and behavioural problems. Some dogs develop subtle signs that show up in the answers to these questions, even though the dogs are not yet showing significant signs of disease.
Some follow-up surveys and work will hopefully lead to the early detection of dogs that may go on to develop clinical problems. With this information we may be able to develop plans and techniques to prevent and treat those problems.
