When to contact your vet
Contact your vet if you think your dog has a skin fold problem. Infected skin can cause a lot of discomfort and cause serious problems if left untreated.
It is very important to stop your dog (or any other pets!) from licking or scratching any sore patches as soon as you notice a problem. Your vet might provide you with a cone (Buster collar) or other device to stop them licking or scratching. You can also purchase these yourself at a pet shop or online.
You know your dog best. If they don’t have the symptoms listed above but you are still concerned it’s always best to book an appointment with your vet.
