Skin conditions

Although most skin problems are not emergencies, it is important to get an accurate diagnosis so the condition can be treated.

See your veterinarian if your dog is scratching or licking excessively, or if you notice any changes in your pet’s coat or skin, including scaling, redness, discolouration, or bald patches. Once the cause is identified, most skin problems respond well to treatment.

Please bring any prescribed shampoos with you on your grooming appointment and check with your vet that any problems cannot be transferred.
