The skin is the largest organ of the body, but some pet owners tend to overlook it. Instead, pet owners tend to focus on diseases of the heart, kidneys, and lungs. However, pet skin problems can impact an animal’s overall quality of life. Our veterinarian at Advanced Mobile Vet wants to share some of the most common pet dermatology problems so you will know what to look for, which can make a huge difference in the life of your pet.
If you notice any signs of a skin issue on your pet, it is imperative to reach out to a mobile veterinarian to schedule a pet exam. If you live in or around East Lake, Seminole, Volusia, and Orange County contact Dr. Smith at Advanced Mobile Vet.
Symptoms of Pet Skin Problems
You will recognize most symptoms if you observe itching, irritation, redness, rashes, bald patches, lumps, lesions, scabs, dry/flaky skin, swelling, and hot spots. Your pet may also be excessively scratching, licking, chewing, biting, rubbing, or scooting. Make an appointment with our mobile veterinarian as soon as possible, since the sores and lesions can lead to infections quicker than you realize.
Common Types of Pet Skin Problems
Some of the most common types of pet skin issues include flea allergic dermatitis, mange, atopic dermatitis, ringworm, hot spots, yeast infections, impetigo, folliculitis, and lupus. Our mobile veterinarian will come to your home, perform a thorough pet exam, diagnose your pet, and create the appropriate treatment plan based on the results.
