Endocrinology
Endocrine disease stems from imbalance in hormone levels, affecting cats or dogs in many ways, often requiring lifetime medical attention. Many endocrine disorders are fatal if not diagnosed and treated. Veterinarians place a high importance on quality of life and often see endocrinology as a challenging and interesting discipline.

Dermatology and Care
Dermatology represents approximately 20% of veterinarians' clinical time and is a major focus area for the industry. Best practice techniques look to adopt more topical products as opposed to oral treatments, with the aim of utilising less antibiotics. Dechra's product portfolio is well positioned for this approach.
