Caring for your pet: Dermatology

March 13, 2014 6:43:09 PM PDT
Complications of the skin and ears are among the most common reasons for veterinary office visits.

The skin is considered the largest organ in the body, and problems with it can leave your pet feeling uncomfortable and distressed. This can cause you as an owner to feel concerned with your pet's constant scratching, licking, and general unease.

These are all symptoms associated with most dermatological issues. Animals are susceptible to a variety of skin disorders including Allergies, Ectoparasites, Bacterial and Fungal Infections, Hereditary and Congenital Diseases, Chronic Ear Infections, Diseases of the Feet, Footpads and Nails, Autoimmune Skin Diseases, Endocrine (hormonal) Disorders, and Skin Cancer.
