Has your dog got red, inflamed, angry looking skin? Or do they have a rash? We often call these symptoms ‘dermatitis’.
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.
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.
