The Importance of Dermatology in Pet Health

A pet’s skin is their first line of defense against the outside world. It protects them from environmental hazards and helps regulate body temperature. However, skin issues can be both frustrating for your pet and concerning for you as an owner. Dermatological conditions can manifest in various ways, including itchiness, redness, rashes, hair loss, and more. Identifying and addressing these issues promptly is crucial to your pet’s comfort, health, and quality of life.
