Canine skin problems

Diet and the Skin

Hotspots, oiliness, skin odor, crusting, and redness are common canine skin problems.
Nutritional deficiencies can cause a variety of skin problems in dogs, including hotspots, redness and itching. Chef K9's freshly prepared canine diets provide the proper nutritional balance to help dogs have healthier coats and skin.

Did you know that skin diseases account for as much as 25% of the cases seen by small animal veterinarians? Skin problems typically faced by pets and their owners include:

  • Itching
  • Dandruff
  • Crusting
  • Redness
  • Odor
  • Scabbing
  • Blackheads
  • Rashes
  • Oiliness
  • "Hotspots"

The nutritional aspect of skin disease is a very broad topic, too broad to address in this small article. There are true nutritional deficiencies, which affect the skin and other skin diseases that can be made dramatically better through the use of proper nutrition.

By eating better quality foods, and by making the proper food selections, many of the skin disorders listed above can be alleviated or possibly even eliminated.
