Dog Skin Care
There are many contributing factors to skin diseases in dogs. Skin disease can present as hair loss, excessive scratching, redness of the skin, open wounds on the skin surface, lesions on the body and discoloured fur from licking. Common causes of these symptoms can include food allergies, environmental allergies, bacterial or fungal infections (ringworm), external parasites (mange) or even hormonal changes. Due to this wide variety of symptoms and causes, a veterinary examination is required to make a specific diagnosis and treatment plan depending on the cause of your pet’s skin disease.
