Cats spend a lot of time grooming to keep themselves clean. If you notice your cat has dandruff (dry, flaky skin) it could be a sign of a problem.
Has your cat got red, inflamed or angry looking skin? Do they have a rash? We often call these symptoms ‘dermatitis’.
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.
Fur loss (alopecia) in rabbits usually appears in patches and depending on the cause often comes with a variation of other symptoms.
