Skin Issues in Pet Dermatology
One of the most notable conditions of the skin is when it reflects shortages in sufficient nutrients as well as hydration. Dry skin, excessive dander, irritations, rashes and similar, might also indicate a problem with your pet’s skin or fur.
If there are parasites present, they might make themselves known through various skin reactions. They might cause mange, a skin condition that causes a loss of fur, inflammation and swollen, upset skin surfaces, as well as rashes and itching. Fleas and their bites might cause allergic reactions, which can become apparent with scratching, infections and swelling.
Treatments and Skin Care

Some methods that our veterinarian on our veterinary team might include is medicine and nutrition to help the skin begin to heal itself. The newest skin layer is deeper than the surface, at the sub-dermal level. It represents the body’s attempt to restore and repair, but without sufficient resources to work with, the process might not work properly, and the skin grows with limitations.
