    Veterinary Dermatology And How THis Can Help Your Great Dane

     

    Animals have been part of our lives forever. We have always needed them for traveling, carrying or companionship and the animals needed us back to take care of them by providing shelter and food. However, shelter and food is often not enough as a pet ‘parent’ needs to ensure that the pet receives proper health care and exercise in order to keep fit and live as long as possible.

    Skin Diseases

    Animals just like humans encounter skin diseases but sometimes they can get very acute and even fatal conditions if not treated in time. Veterinary dermatology is a whole department, just like human dermatology that is dedicated to skin issues alone. All veterinarians study veterinary dermatology and therefore they all have the basic knowledge about animal skin diseases. This is why you will often not be sent to a special veterinary dermatology department in order to diagnose and treat your pet.

    However, if a vet is not sure of the disease or you are not happy with the symptoms and/or reaction of the animal to the treatment given, additional tests may need to be conducted. Vets may order a battery of tests of the blood, stool and urine in order to determine the disease/s. Veterinary dermatology is intensive and precise but because it is very hard to know exactly what animals feel, it is at times very hard to pin point an illness.

    Skin Diseases Symptoms

    Always watch your pet closely in order to be able to recognize any unusual symptoms such as, excessive itching, excessive shedding of fur, skin rash and sensitivity to touching and petting. Taking your pet as soon as possible to a vet is important in order to determine the cause, get treatment and provide relief as soon as possible.

    Most animal skin diseases are not contagious to humans but can affect us in other ways in the long run. Therefore take no chances and try not to self-medicate your pets but rather take them to veterinary dermatology in order to get find relief for your friend.

    Helpful Tips

    Many pet owners who are used to getting everything online inclusive of pet medication often will check and follow indications that are found online in order to treat themselves and their pets. While such remedies work once in a while, remember that there might be minor details that you may miss at home but which will be obvious for your doctor and probably crucial for treating your pet. Therefore, always try and run a treatment by your vet first before administering it to your pet.
