A condition of abnormal functioning of the skin of a dog or cat. Skin diseases are quite common in pets, and there are basically two types: curable and non-curable. Some of the most common curable types of skin diseases that can affect cats and dogs include bacterial dermatitis, Malassezia infections, ringworms, seborrhea and flea allergy dermatitis.

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.
