International Committee on Allergic Diseases of Animals publishes guidelines on Canine Atopic Dermatitis

Members of The International Committee on Allergic Diseases of Animals (ICADA) have published two important Consensus and Guideline Papers in BioMed Central Veterinary Research:


• Canine Atopic Dermatitis: Detailed Guidelines for Diagnosis and Allergen Identification - click here
• Update on Treatment of Canine Atopic Dermatitis - click here
These articles are freely accessible via the Internet by following the links. The papers provide valuable clinical information on the diagnosis and treatment of the most common non-parasitic allergic skin disease in companion animal medicine. The guidelines are applicable and essential to both general and specialty clinical practice.

The International Committee on Allergic Diseases of Animals is an Affiliate Organization of the World Association for Veterinary Dermatology. ICADA was established in 2010 to arrange for the publication of critical reviews on atopic dermatitis and other allergic conditions affecting the skin and other organ systems of all domestic animal species, and to advance the practice of veterinary dermatology as applied to allergic diseases.
