What usually causes skin problems in pets?
There are many factors that can lead to skin problems. Your pet may have an allergic reaction to something in their environment or to a specific food. It can also be caused by parasites. In some cases, it may be a bacterium or a fungus. Whatever the cause, if you're noticing any physical changes or different habits in your furry friend's body and habits, it's best to make an appointment at the clinic so we can diagnose and treat the problem.
