Representing the state of the art of veterinary dermatology around the globe, Advances in Veterinary Dermatology, Volume 7, presents selected scientific papers from the Seventh World Congress of Veterinary Dermatology. The Congress, held in Vancouver, Canada in July 2012, was organized with the support of the World Association for Veterinary Dermatology (WAVD) and its affiliated societies. A record number of delegates attended from over 50 countries to take advantage of the exceptional scientific program. Cutting edge information was presented as review papers and original studies in the areas of:
- Skin Biology
These peer-reviewed and edited papers were published in the journal Veterinary Dermatology in volume 24, issue 1, and are included in this hardbound book volume of the conference proceedings. Also included are 13 Workshop Reports which summarise sessions where experts presented topics in various areas providing a wonderful opportunity for colleagues to ask questions and exchange ideas in an informal atmosphere.
