We have a three-month-old Labrador pup. She is having skin problem as her skin is peeling off continuously. I have applied some medicines after consulting the vet, but we see no improvement. She is very energetic and lovely. Please advice.

There are many diseases and conditions which can cause peeling of skin in puppies. Poor nutrition, dry skin, inherited skin diseases, parasites like fleas and mites, simple infections like impetigo or pustules can cause crusts and scaling skin in puppies. If there is no improvement with conventional medication, your vet may advise basic investigations to find out the underlying cause.
