A variety of skin problems can affect dogs and cats, including allergies, bacterial and fungal infections, and parasite infestations. Most skin problems in pets are curable or manageable, so if your pet seems itchy or has skin that doesn't look healthy, contact your veterinarian. It is important to have your veterinarian examine your pet to determine the cause of the problem.
