The natural grease produced under the skin of the pet begins to dry up. This is often caused by a deficiency of omega-3, which can be treated with a good diet. Consult a veterinarian for advice on diet change. A more severe skin disease can also be the cause of a flaky skin. It is advised to consult a veterinarian, as skin diseases need to be treated.
When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
