Advances in Veterinary Dermatology, Volume 6, presents selected scientific papers presented at the Sixth World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology held in Hong Kong. Six themed sessions were represented by a State of the Art plenary lecture, followed by Supporting Reviews and Supporting Original Studies, in the following areas: Skin Biology, Parasitology, Therapy, Infectious Diseases, Otology and Immunology. These peer-reviewed and edited papers were published in the journal Veterinary Dermatology in volume 20, issues 5-6, and are reprinted in book format. They are written by noted clinicians and scientists from around the world, and represent the cutting edge of research and clinical findings in the field of veterinary dermatology. Exclusive to this book are 15 Workshop Reports - summary comments from World Congress discussion sessions, held on a variety of timely and controversial topics in the field. This proceedings volume will be of interest to veterinarians in practice as well as specialist veterinary dermatologists.
