Do you often see your pet scratching or itching themselves more frequently than before? There could be an underlying problem. Before telling you about the solution, here are a few possible causes of skin issues your pet may be facing:
Problem 1: Allergic Dermatitis:
Pollen, a major allergen that is activated in the environment with the breeze during the rainy season, is the cause for redness in skin in our pets – also known as allergic dermatitis.
Problem 2: Red Bumps:
Red bumps are one of the classic symptoms of a bacterial skin condition which can happen due to mange, allergies or even injury.
Problem 3: Atopic Dermatitis:
Atopic dermatitis is an inflammatory skin condition in dogs and cats that result from inhalant/contact allergies. Examples of common allergens include moulds, grasses, trees, ragweed, and pollens which become more common during the monsoon season.
Problem 4: Fungal or Bacterial Infection:
Paws are the only organs that have sweat glands present in pets. More often than not, the activated sweat glands after walk or play time combined with the humid weather can be a big reason to foster fungal or bacterial infections in pets. Their paws then touch other parts of the body, spreading the infection.
Problem 5: Dry Skin:
Allergic skin disorders like flea bites, mites, tick bites, atopy and other allergens can cause dry or flaky skin. It can also be caused due to the dandruff on our pet’s skin.
Problem 6: Hot Spots:
This is also known as moist dermatitis that appears red & inflamed which feel hot to the touch. Hot spots can result from a wide range of conditions, including infections, allergies, insect bites etc. Hot spots are more common in hot, humid climates and will sometimes arise after a dog has been exposed to moisture from swimming or muddy/rainy weather.
Problem 7: Yeast Infection:
Yeast dermatitis is an inflammatory skin condition that occurs fairly regularly, especially in skin folds, ears, between paw pads during hot humid weather. This is developed often due to the moisture in the skin and coat after not being dried well and this kind of infection can even cause a sour smell and odour in our pets.
Problem 8: Ticks & Fleas:
Ticks and fleas, a common deterrent to pet’s health during the rainy season. The cold & humidity of the season makes pets more and more susceptible to these external parasites, whose bites can cause major itching and allergic reaction in our pet’s skin.
Problem 9: Hair Loss or Patches:
Bacterial skin infections like flea bites, mange (mites) or ringworm can cause hair loss in patches or excessive hair shedding.
