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.
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.
A cat’s claws and teeth are covered in bacteria, if they bite or scratch each other it’s very likely that an infection will develop.
Dogs like to keep themselves clean, so if you notice your dog has dandruff (dry, flaky skin) it could be a sign of a problem.
