Finding a lump on your cat can be worrying. It’s very important to have any lumps checked by your vet and to monitor them for any changes.
If your dog loves running through long grass, it’s important to check them for grass seeds afterwards. Grass seeds might look small and harmless, but can cause a great deal of trouble.
Alopecia develops in one of two ways, your cat pulls their own hair out or the hair drops out. Common causes of hair loss in cats include fleas, stress and allergies.
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.
Harvest mites can often be seen as tiny red/orange ‘dots’ on the skin and fur, and usually cause symptoms like itchy skin and red, inflamed skin on dogs.
