There are many different types of skin conditions that can cause a rash on your dog. Most dogs lead a fairly active life and can get into things that will irritate their skin. The problem is, our dogs can’t tell us that they’re uncomfortable! We’re often left to interpret their feelings and discover a dog rash on our own.
If you have a pet that particularly enjoys playing in nature, to prevent skin irritation, you should make sure to bathe your dog regularly. Dust and dirt can work their way through your dog’s coat and irritate their skin if it becomes trapped under their fur. Also take into consideration poisonous plants that can cause an allergic reaction or a dog rash.
If you have a dog that prefers the comfort of the “great indoors,” you must also watch for skin irritation. Many times, home environmental systems will dry the air that is pumped around your home. Just as it can affect people and require treatment for dry skin, it can do the same to your pet.
While irritated skin or a rash is uncomfortable for your dog, it could only be the start of a more worrisome skin problem. Dogs don’t understand chronic itching and will simply try to scratch and bite until the discomfort goes away. The problem is, this can further irritate your pet’s skin. Eventually, if left unchecked, this can lead to a dangerous infection.
By far the best way to keep any dog rash or skin irritation in check is to keep your animal clean. Our special Skin-eze Shampoo will help you keep your dog clean and comfortable and help to soothe any patches of dry or irritated skin. If your dog spends most of their time indoors, they will only need to be bathed about once a week. Animals that spend a lot of their time outside, on the other hand, may need bathing more often. During the winter, your dog should also have their paws cleaned. Their paws may pick up road salt, which is particularly harmful. We also offer a larger variety of treatments for dog skin problems. If you believe skin allergies to be the cause, consider a safe, all-natural treatment such as our Skin-eze Herbal Capsules and Tablets. Or look at one of the Full Treatment Packs if you pet has a more severe skin condition.
