The most common causes are allergies, parasites such as fleas and ticks, infections caused by bacteria or yeast fungi, and injuries.
How do I recognise skin irritations and wounds in my dog?
Signs of skin irritation and wounds include itching, redness, swelling, hair loss or open wounds. Watch for changes in behaviour and consult a veterinarian if suspected.
How do I treat skin irritations and wounds in my dog?

When do I use the silver cream, when the silver spray and when the First Aid balm?
Silver spray is used for immediate disinfection of scratches, small cuts or abrasions, is painless and "rinses" or cleanses. In case of acute need, the silver spray should therefore always be the first and quick choice.
The silver cream disinfects with microsilver and forms a protective layer on the skin. The silver cream is ideal for use after the silver spray. It brings the skin flora back into balance and supports skin recovery. The contained MICROSILVER (not nano silver!) ensures that the dog's skin can regenerate particularly well under a protective film as silver. This effect - the QUICK RECOVERY EFFICIENCY EFFECT (QRE) - is optimised by the silver, so the skin is protected and regeneration is accelerated at the same time.
The First Aid Balm soothes dry & irritated skin and intensively moisturises it with hyaluron. It is used to care for very dry, flaky or itchy skin and acts like a highly nourishing and moisturising serum. It can be used for long-term care of stressed or irritated skin.
When should I take my dog to the vet for skin irritations and wounds?
In case of severe skin irritations and deep wounds, you should consult a vet immediately. If symptoms persist for more than two days or worsen, a visit to the vet is also advisable. Early diagnosis and treatment can speed up your dog's recovery and reduce the risk of complications.
How do I promote the regeneration of my dog’s skin?

Can I give my dog pain relief for skin irritations and wounds?
Yes, there are special painkillers for dogs that can be prescribed by the vet. In some cases, alternative treatments such as acupuncture or physiotherapy can also help. However, always discuss any use of painkillers on your dog with your vet first.
How do I avoid skin irritations and wounds on my dog?
A healthy lifestyle with sufficient exercise and a balanced diet can strengthen the immune system and reduce the risk of skin irritations and sores. In addition, the dog should be checked regularly for parasites, such as fleas and ticks, and these should be removed as soon as possible to prevent skin irritations and sores in your dog.
