Your dog's

The general condition of your dog's skin and coat are good indicators of its health. When health and diet will influence your dog's skin from inside, regular grooming and skin care will protect it from the outside. 

The Skin Barrier

A complex and fragile ecosystem…

The skin barrier is essential to protect the body from bacteria, yeasts, allergens and all other bad guys out there. It also retains moisture.

To be efficient, the skin barrier protection relies on 3 components which interact :

  • the mechanical skin barrier,
  • the immunological skin barrier and
  • the microbiological skin barrier.

This balance is fragile and deserves your care and protection.

...with essential functions

The skin has a principal role : protection of outside agressions, temperature regulations, elimination of sebum excess and release of pheromones involved in territorial marking, social and sexual communication.

Whatever the colour or the thickness of his fur, all the dogs can be touched by a skin problem. 

A dry skin, a oily or flaky skin, hot spot, itchs, a colonisation of bacteria, overgrowth of yeasts can be symptoms of a defective skin barrier. Only your veterinarian can prescribe a treatment.

At the same time, DOUXO® can help you every day to take care of your dog in a preventive approach.
