We know how worrying it can be to find a lump on your dog. The word cancer immediately comes to mind. However, lumps aren’t always nasty.
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.
Hot spots can appear anywhere on the body and usually look red, angry and wet.
Scratching is common in all dogs, however there are many reasons they may have itchier skin than usual.
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.
