Top Dog Skin Conditions

Top Dog Skin Conditions
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, skin conditions are among the top three health concerns for dogs. Here are some of the most common signs of a condition:

  • Red, inflamed skin
  • Bumps on dog’s skin
  • Rashes
  • Scabs
  • Hair loss
  • Excessive scratching
  • Excessive licking

1. Skin Cancer

Skin growths and lumps are common in dogs and not all are cancerous. Your vet will need to make a proper diagnosis because it’s difficult to spot what type of growth your dog has. When caught early, many dog skin cancers are fully treatable.

2. Skin Allergies

Many dogs suffer from  allergic dermatitis or atopic dermatitis. The most common causes are environmental factors, food, flea bites, etc. Signs include frequent itching, inflamed skin, rashes, hives, bumps on the skin, and possible hair loss.

3. Ringworm

Ringworm, caused by a few different fungi, signs include roughly circular areas of hair loss and red, inflamed, or scabby skin that’s not usually itchy. Highly contagious, the fungus can spread to other areas of the body so prompt vet care is essential to keep it from spreading to others.
