THIS IRRITATES me!
Skin irritations and wounds
Every owner occasionally had to deal with it. Your animal has a wound or skin irritation. A wound is an injury to the natural tissue of the skin or epidermis. During wound healing, the body tries to repair this barrier as quickly as possible. Usually the recovery is faster when correct wound care is applied. The skin often repairs itself but with every injury of the skin there is an increased chance of infection and therefore further damage.
Skin irritations can vary from contact with a plant to a skin condition such as seborrhoea. A skin irritation causes the animal to bite, scratch or lick more and this can lead to more problems. The skin protects against external influences. In addition, the skin also ensures the storage of proteins, water and minerals. Moreover, it is an obstacle for pathogens that try to enter the body.
