Whatever the colour or the thickness of their fur, all dogs can have skin problems. Dermatology issues are common, this is the second reason for veterinary consultation in dogs.
What to look for ?
A healthy coat is shiny and smooth, and healthy skin is supple and clear. Any change in your pet's general coat appearance may be the first indicator of health problems. You should suspect a skin issue as soon as you see brittle, lackluster or quilted fur, greasy, flaky or red skin.
Skin problems don’t only affect the health and comfort of your pet. They are often uncomfortable and challenging for you to manage too.
