Has your dog developed brown, pink or orange patches of fur? On their feet? Around their mouth or eyes? In an area that they lick a lot?
Hair loss (alopecia) means bald spots, patchy fur or just thinning fur. Parasites, hormone problems and allergies are all common causes of alopecia in dogs.
Vaccination is an important way of protecting your dog against some serious diseases. Read our vet's advice on dog vaccinations and how they work.
Has your dog got red, inflamed, angry looking skin? Or do they have a rash? We often call these symptoms ‘dermatitis’.
Hot spots can appear anywhere on the body and usually look red, angry and wet.
