Clinical guidelines are fairly new (and limited) in veterinary medicine, although they’re widespread in human medicine. Following up on recent guidelines for diagnosis of treatment of urinary tract infections in dogs and cats, a working group from the International Society for Companion Animal Infectious Diseases (ISCAID) has completed guidelines for the treatment of a common type of skin infection in dogs, superficial folliculitis (pyoderma).

The guidelines have been published in Veterinary Dermatology, and are also available by clicking here, as well as on the Worms & Germs Resources – Pets page.
