[New Product] Help Treat your Pet’s Seborrhea
What is Seborrhea?
Canine and feline Seborrhea is a skin condition that can either be inherited (primary) or occur as a result of another medical issue (secondary), both of which can be treated with cleansers like DOUXO Seborrhea Shampoo. While relatively rare in both cats and dogs, primary seborrhea is common in Persian and Himalayan cats. Dog breeds that are most commonly known for suffering from Canine Seborrhea are Shar-Peis, West Highland, White Terriers (Westies), Doberman Pinschers, American Cocker Spaniels, German Shepherds, English Springer Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, Basset Hounds, Labrador Retrievers, Irish Setters, and Dachshunds.
Secondary seborrheic dermatitis is more commonly a result of other medical conditions, like:
- Fleas and ticks
- Autoimmune disorders
- Endocrine disorders (Cushing’s and thyroid disease)
- Dietary deficiencies (poor diet/obesity)
- Malabsorption disorders
- Fungal infection (especially yeast skin infections)
- Bacterial infection
- Environmental factors (changes in temperature or humidity)
- Poor grooming
- Cancer (especially cutaneous lymphoma)
Does my pet have a seborrheic skin condition?
Your pet may be suffering from seborrhea dermatitis if you notice they have dry, flaky skin (dandruff), greasy skin and hair that usually emits a foul smell, inflamed skin, and scratching. If your pet scratches the affected areas too much, it may lead to bleeding, crusting, or hair loss.
If you notice any of these symptoms, take your pet in to see your veterinarian. If it’s a secondary condition, you may be able to rid your pet of seborrhea altogether by taking care of the medical condition that is causing it. If it’s primary seborrhea, you can manage the symptoms with shampoos and sprays.
