Skin is very important for protection and keeping the body warm. Skin problems can significantly affect a dog’s quality of life and make them feel miserable.
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?
Fur loss (alopecia) in rabbits usually appears in patches and depending on the cause often comes with a variation of other symptoms.
Book an appointment with your vet if you notice your rabbit has a skin problem, waiting could lead to a more serious issue developing.
Atopic dermatitis (atopy) is a skin problem caused by an allergy to something in the environment (such as pollen, moulds, grass or dust mite).
