Symptoms of Dog & Cat Skin Problems The skin is the largest organ of the body. Flexible and waterproof, it performs several important roles, including acting as a barrier, regulating influence between the outside environment and the controlled environment within our pets' bodies, as well as supporting the liver, kidneys, and intestines. An animal's skin is susceptible to many conditions, including itchiness, rashes, flea bites, dryness, dandruff, and wounds. Skin problems are common in a variety of dog and cats. Going hand-in-hand with our pet's skin is their coat. Shiny, healthy coats are regarded as a sign of health and vitality in cats and dogs. However, without proper care, the coat of any animal may become lackluster, brittle, and may even begin to fall out. While many factors influence a healthy coat, nutrition is crucial. The right balance of protein, carbohydrates, and minerals can go a long way to help keeping your pet's coat healthy. Proper grooming for dogs and cats alike also plays a big factor. To remove matted, tangled longer hair, you may try using a special comb. Grooming brushes will help to remove dead surface hair and dead skin cells, also helping to distribute natural oil on the coat.

Other Treatments for Symptoms of Dog & Cat Skin Problems Support your pet's skin and coat health with these tips: Do not change diet suddenly. This may cause intolerance to certain food ingredients and, consequently, a skin allergy. Check for fleas and de-flea your animal regularly. Never use human cosmetic lotions on your animal's skin. A tablespoon or two of olive oil added to their food a few times a week can help improve skin and coat health by stimulating natural oils in the skin. If you suspect a dietary intolerance may be the underlying cause of your pet's skin problems, start by providing your pet with a natural, unprocessed diet. Dry your pet thoroughly after washing, as shampoo residue can dry on the skin and cause itching and rashes. Vitamin A helps maintain healthy skin. Sources include carrots, squash, and sweet potatoes.
