In this episode, host Alyssa Watson, DVM, talks with Robert Kennis, DVM, DACVD, MS, about his recent Clinician’s Brief article, “Top 5 Dermatologic Indications for Pentoxifylline in Dogs.” This unique medication—once touted as a “miracle drug” and studied for treating atopy—has solidified its place in managing vasculitis and related conditions. Dr. Kennis reviews its many virtues, its minor baggage, and how he (and we) should use it.
