Much like humans, animals can also experience skin irritation, inflammation and itching. Considering how most pets are outdoor enthusiasts, being the adventurers that they are, it’s common for animals to experience this discomfort and irritation in their skin. Having a fur coat above their layer of skin can also contribute to bacterial growth or even induce allergies. Oftentimes, pet dermatology is requested from canine pet parents.
Cat and Dog Dermatologists
Recent studies show that nearly one in seven canines and felines experience some sort of allergy, which often results in exhibiting skin problems. Such allergies are often triggered by exposure to grass, mold and most commonly, fleas. Topical allergens these pets may experience may include allergies to wool or cotton (yes, pet’s have sensitive skin, too!).
