Skin diseases are very common in veterinary medicine. Many of them are chronic and it can be very difficult to find the cause of the problem.
Allergies are the most common problems in skin conditions; diagnosis is often difficult and may take time to find right treatment(s). Many skin diseases cause intense itching and scratching which leads to further skin damage.
Your veterinarian will determine the instigating cause of the skin problem and with correct diagnosis and proper therapy will produce comfort for your pet and stop the frustration of all members of the family.
