Sit, stay, learn! Our blog about all things dog.
There are so many reasons a dog rash can appear on your pup’s delicate skin, and allergies are one of the most common reasons why. Interestingly, according to VPI Pet Insurance, skin conditions such as dog rashes are the number one reason dogs visit the vet, with the average visit costing $183.
While allergies are a common culprit of dog skin rashes, there are many other potential causes including dry skin, yeast infection, mange, dandruff, hot spots, infections, ticks, or fleas. Almost all skin conditions result in lots of licking, chewing and itching, which only makes the problem worse.
How to Find the Cause of Your Dog’s Rash
The first step to helping your dog find relief is to diagnose the cause of the rash, so how do you do that?
- Check your dog’s rash carefully, looking for signs of fleas, bite marks, etc. Inspecting the site may provide clues to what’s irritating your dog’s skin.
- Next, compare the symptoms of the dog rash with common symptoms of skin ailments. Here’s a great blog that provides the most common symptoms of potential skin conditions.
- At what age and time of year did symptoms originate? Did you change your dog’s food or do something out of the ordinary before the dog rash appeared? The answers to these questions can help you determine the cause. These are all things your vet will want to know as well.
