Dog Skin Problems

At Chandler Gilbert Animal Hospital, we are proud to offer a wide range of services that include general preventative care and more specialized services for your dog. One service we provide that people usually do not think about for their dog is dermatology. Dermatology is the branch of medicine that focuses on diagnosing and treating issues related to the skin. Untreated skin issues lead to constant scratching and licking that can turn into sores on the body and lead to several other problems. If your dog is experiencing any skin issues, our team is here to help.

Common Skin Problems

Allergic Dermatitis: Humans aren't the only ones to have allergies. All animals can potentially have an allergic reaction to certain foods and grasses. Reactions like itching, redness, and hair loss, in addition to non-skin reactions like sneezing and runny eyes, could be signs of an allergy.

Atopic Dermatitis: Atopic dermatitis is a skin disease caused by an allergic reaction to airborne substances like pollen. It can also be caused by a dog ingesting substances that he or she is sensitive to. This can irritate a specific spot on or all over the body.

Cushing's Disease: Also called hyperadrenocorticism, Cushing's disease occurs when the adrenal glands secrete excess cortisone. This disease can result in hair loss and non-skin symptoms like lethargy, excessive thirst, and excessive urination.

Ringworm: Ringworm is a bit of a misnomer, as this is a skin condition caused by fungi and not a type of worm. Ringworm generally affects younger puppies but can be present in dogs of any age. It is generally more common to appear in dogs that frequent boarding and daycare-like facilities. The dermatological symptoms of ringworm include skin lesions, scaly patches, hair loss, and excessive itching or licking.
