How To Treat Skin Conditions In Dogs
Veterinary surgeon Roger Wickenden shares some tips and advice on the causes of skin disease in dogs, and some common treatments.
- Dogs' skin can only respond in a limited number of ways, making it very difficult to distinguish between different causes of skin disease just by looking at the skin.
- In most cases you should take your dog for a diagnosis from your vet, and treat it with licensed drugs.
- You should treat your dog for fleas, as they are the most common cause of skin disease. Use a flea product that has a residual action, preventing the fleas from laying eggs and breaking their life cycle.
