My Pug’s skin disease is not getting cured in spite of my repeated vet visits. He initially got red and subsequently blackish blisters all over his body and they keep spreading to the rest of his body. Please help.


Dogs are highly susceptible to skin diseases due to poor skin barrier function or poor nutrition. Fleas, mange or allergy or hormonal imbalance with poorly controlled secondary bacterial or yeast infection can lead to recurrent skin problem. Allergies like atopy are some of the most common causes of chronic problem in dogs. It is essential to find the underlying cause of chronic skin problem as many diseases can cause the same symptoms. Therefore correct diagnosis is essential to determine the correct treatment.
