Healthy skin and a healthy coat are not only beautiful to look at and to pet, but also give a good indication of your dog’s internal health.You may look at your dog and wonder if his skin is healthy.
Does he have fleas? Is he carrying something that you or your family can catch? His coat seems to look okay, but what about that bare spot or that redness on his tummy? What is that waxy stuff coming from his ears?
Both puppies and adult dogs are prone to a large variety of skin conditions. Some of them are contagious to people as well as to other animals in the household. Others may just stay on your dog and not catch anyone else.
