Skin is the largest organ of the human body performing many different functions including thermoregulation, immunologic protection, sensory perception, vitamin D production and it generally acts as a protective barrier between the animal and its surroundings so skin conditions are very frequent with dogs and cats. Although the changes on the skins are directly visible, diagnosing skin conditions is not an easy task.
Because of that systematic approach is crucial in order to make a correct diagnosis of skin conditions. If your pet is constantly scratching itself, licking, biting its paws, its hair is dull and there is an intensified hair loss, there are hairless areas on the body or even wounds, it’s time for complete dermatological examination of your pet.
