Signs and symptoms
Is your dog’s skin healthy?
Is your dog itching, scratching, licking or rubbing more than normal?
There might be some reasons.
Check the area where you think the irritation is, and if you see any of the following, take your dog to a vet for a proper examination:
- Red patches, spots or pimples
- Scabs, crusts or thickened skin
- Flaky or scaly patches
- Hair loss
Other things to consider of your dog’s skin health can be more difficult to identify, but if you notice any of the following, it is a good idea to take your dog to a vet to get a professional evaluation:
- Change of appetite
- Bad skin odour
