One cause of skin problems in dogs is flea's many dogs are allergic to flea's and then there are allergies to food, the flea problem is much easier to remedy. Food allergies can take many visits to the vet and a trial and error approach to finding the cause.

Many pets suffer from seasonal allergies, which can cause skin conditions. Commonly owners will see "hot-spots" where the dog has chewed a raw irritated spot on his body. Fleas also cause some dogs to have itchy break outs. Less commonly there are mites that cause irritation and hair loss.
