Bull terriers are a fun breed, full of personality. Unfortunately, they are prone to a few skin problems. Name the most common skin conditions seen in this breed. Thankfully, this cute little puppy had healthy skin.
- Mange caused by the demodex mite. (I see this mite causing problems in puppies from many breeds).
- Solar dermatitis as well as cancer – Any dog with white hair and pink skin is prone to sunburn and eventually cancer from sun exposure. I have removed many hemangiomas, hemangiosarcomas and squamous cell carcinomas from dogs who love to sunbathe.
- Tail mutilation.
- Lethal acrodermatitis.
