Pet parents spend a lot of time searching the internet when something is wrong with their pet. While the internet can be a great resource, some of the information is not always reliable and this is particularly the case when it comes to pet skin conditions. Misinformation can prompt owners to think that their pets are dying of skin cancer or have skin issues that require exotic diets. It turns out that both these situations are extremely rare.
Advanced Dermatology teamed up with Veterinarian Krista Magnificio to create a comprehensive guide for pet owners that clears up many common misconceptions regarding pet skin conditions. They wanted to try and dispel common myths regarding two of the most talked-about culprits of a pet’s skin (diet and cancer). In the guide they cover the primary causes of pet skin conditions, the signs you need to look out for, and the things to discuss with your veterinarian if you suspect your pet has a skin condition that needs to be addressed.
