Managing a pet’s skin and coat is one of the most common reasons a pet owner will take their dog or cat to visit the vet. In dogs, there are certain breeds that may need more support for their skin and coat than others.
Your pet’s skin has a multitude of jobs to do, so keeping it in good condition can also lead to a healthy and happy pet. The causes fall into several categories and to complicate matters some pets can be affected by more than one cause. These can include things such as fleas, food allergies and an acute fatty balance.
Common signs that your pet may need support for their skin and coat could include:
- Thin or balding patches
- A dull or greasy coat
- Persistent itching and scratching
- Dry or flaky skin
- Hair loss or moulting
- Constant grooming or licking
- Redness and inflammation
- Scabs and crusts on the skin
Speak to your vet about any of the above and ask them for more information on additional ways to maintain the health of your pet. Your vet is best placed to monitor your pet’s health and can offer advice depending on your pet’s health needs.
