Seborrhea

.

This is a genetic disease which generally begins at a very young age, and lasts forever.

This causes a dog’s skin to become greasy and starts to get scales (which as humans we know as Dandruff)

.

Seborrhea can also be caused by other medication.

A few other causes could be allergy, a hormonal abnormality, autoimmune disorders and parasites

.

The build up of the oil on the skin can cause the dog to smell bad

Dogs scratch the affected areas causing bleeding, hair loss and sometimes get secondary infections due to the skin being damaged

.

Signs normally show by two years of age. It progresses as they get older

.

Diagnosis:

  • Fecal exam
  • Physical examination
  • Skin scrapings
  • Blood tests
  • Biopsy

.

This can’t be cured, but can be controlled with Shampoos and conditioners

This will help keep the skin clean and soothe the animal

Nutrition is also very important – your vet will give you an appropriate diet for your dog
