Signs of a possible skin problem
When your pet has a skin problem, you should see your veterinarian. If your pet has a skin problem there will be signs, often times, more than one. These signs are important clues. Here's what you should watch for:
Discharge is a fluid that seeps from a sore, wound or ears. It may be clear, pink, red, brown, grayish or green. Regardless of color, discharge is almost always an indicator of infection and your pet should be seen by a veterinarian.
Caught early, an infection is often easy to treat. Delayed treatment, however, can result in complications.
