My Pet Itches

Skin Conditions

Skin conditions can be difficult to diagnose

Think back to when you had poison ivy, a case of hives or an itchy mosquito bite. You probably couldn't sleep well and had trouble concentrating because of the itching and discomfort. Unpleasant, right?

When your pet has a skin problem, it's even worse because your pet cannot communicate its discomfort other than scratching, itching, rubbing or being irritable. And, your pet cannot ask for help. Your dog or cat is stuck feeling miserable until you take action.

Because diverse skin problems can often look similar, an accurate diagnosis is critical to effective treatment.

As a pet parent you will want to pay attention to the signs of skin disease, schedule time to see a veterinarian, and organize the information your veterinarian will need to help make an accurate diagnosis.
