What Are Some Potential Causes of Skin Irritation in Dogs?

Skin problems are among the most common reasons why pet owners schedule their dog to see a veterinarian. Are you considering bringing your canine to your local pet hospital in San Jose because of his frequent scratching or reddened skin? If so, then watch this video to learn about some potential causes of skin irritation in dogs.

Parasites, such as fleas and mites, can cause skin irritation in canines, so regular prevention measures can be important for promoting healthy skin in your pet. Also, dogs can be allergic to a variety of things, just like humans, and irritated skin can be an allergy symptom. If your veterinarian suspects that your dog’s skin issues may be due to allergies, then she may recommend treatment with things like steroids or antihistamines.
