The Capsule Report

Informing veterinarians continuously for over 36 years.

The Capsule Report is based on a simple premise “that few veterinarians have the time to study all the lengthy articles in veterinary journals, news reports, and newsletters, nor does the busy clinician have the time to attend all the veterinary conferences that the Capsule covers. The Capsule Report selects the articles that are of practical significance to the veterinarian and separates the wheat from the chaff (i.e. the "good stuff" you want and care about), saving you time and money. The Capsule Report also gathers pertinent information from over 40 national, regional, and state meetings and conferences that can be of immediate use to the practitioner.

An Article from our August 2019 issue

Flank alopecia


"Treatment is usually not required, as the condition is cosmetic only and frequently resolves on its own within a few months. However, some dogs may fail to regrow some or all of their hair. Melatonin (3–12 mg, BID-TID) may speed resolution in some cases, although response may be difficult to distinguish from spontaneous resolution. If recurrence occurs on a predictable basis, “pre-treatment” of the dog with melatonin 4–6 weeks prior to the expected onset may prevent or minimize subsequent episodes."
