Scaling and crusting in dogs: Part 2 – management
Treatment of scaling and crusting should be aimed at addressing underlying root causes. Secondary scaling disorders include allergies, ectoparasitic infestations, endocrine and metabolic disorders, immune-mediated diseases, and neoplastic conditions. Correction of secondary infections and treatment of underlying causes can lead to rapid clinical improvement. Topical therapy is indicated for most dogs with scaling and crusting, irrespective of the cause.
