In veterinary medicine our patients cannot tell us what they are experiencing so veterinarians rely on a complete physical exam and you to help us!  On the left we present you with clinical signs to choose from that you may be observing in your dog or cat.  It’s important to know that pet’s with skin disease often have more than one of these signs in combination.
