It is important to understand the cause beneath the myriad of skin complaints that are evident in our beautiful animal companions.
Many skin problems respond well to conventional treatments, yet there are frustrating reoccurring cases where natural support can provide additional treatment modalities often working alongside conventional treatments.
A diagnosis is essential and referral to a dermatologist is often recommended. (Immunotherapy – allergy vaccination specifically for your dog can be valuable).

Skin conditions can be exacerbated by diet, hormonal disorders, environmental factors and poor immunity.
