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 been blinking excessively, holding an eye shut, showing other signs of eye pain? There are many conditions that can cause painful eye(s), some more serious than others.
Mites and lice are tiny parasites that like to live on dogs (and other species). They damage the skin by biting or burrowing and often cause intense irritation.
Despite its name, ringworm is not a worm; it’s a fungal infection of the skin. It’s also known as ‘dermatophytosis’.
Glaucoma (high pressure inside the eye) is a very painful condition that often causes blindness, especially if it’s left untreated.
