Symptoms of Skin Conditions in Pets

Skin problems in cats and dogs are often easier to notice compared to other health problems. Be on the lookout for the following signs, as these may indicate your cat or dog could benefit from a consult with our pet dermatology vet:

  • Frequent itching, biting, scratching, and shaking
  • Hair loss
  • Hot spots (oozy, crusty, and irritated sores which may or may not heal well)
  • Evidence of fleas or mites
  • Dry flaky skin
  • Rashes and lesions
  • Swelling, lumps, and bumps
  • Redness 
  • Foul odor from the skin

Common Types & Causes of Skin Issues Seen by Our Vet Staff

What brings on these skin issues in the first place? Identifying the cause is crucial for proper treatment, so our pet dermatology vet staff employs the necessary tests and procedures to determine your pet's underlying cause or causes. Such factors often include:

  •  Allergies: to food, smoke, pollen, household chemicals, etc.
  • Mange (a contagious skin condition caused by mite infestation)
  • Fleas, ringworm, and other parasite infestations
  • Bacterial, fungal, and yeast infections
  • Dandruff
  • Autoimmune disorders (such as lupus)
  • Weather and climate changes (e.g., cold dry weather in the winter can lead to dry skin in humans and their animal companions!)

Skin problems are unpleasant for you and uncomfortable for your pet, so if you suspect your animal is dealing with one, then contact our animal hospital in Fairfield right away for an appointment.
