Some pets have skin conditions, and medicated baths can help ease them. For example, if your pet is suffering from seborrhea (a noncontagious condition that can cause skin to become dry and flaky or oily and scaly), a medicated bath can help alleviate the itching. Pets with allergies, flea infestations, and other skin issues could also find relief with a medicated bath.
We can recommend a bath after we’ve examined your pet and diagnosed the problem. Illnesses unrelated to the skin, such as thyroid disease, also can cause skin problems in pets, so we want to be sure we’re treating the root of the problem, not just a symptom.
