How to Identify your Pet’s Bacterial Skin Infection
  1. Bacterial Skin Infections

Dogs and cats are generally infected with the bacterial skin infection. Also known as pyodermas, the disease is caused by Staphylococci (Staph bacteria). Though the bacteria live friendly on the skin of the pet and don’t cause any direct disease, the resulting itching leads to the skin infection. The visible symptoms include yellow pustules, scabs, reddened skin, and lesions. If you don’t act on time, your pet might get attacked by fleas and ticks, which worsens the health of your pet.

  1. Respiratory Tract Infection

The disease is caused by Staphylococcus, which infect the upper respiratory tract of animals and sometimes also the skin. It affects both dogs and cats. Pet owners also come in contact with the infections sometimes.

  1. Leptospirosis Infection (Kidney and Liver Problems)

The disease, which in clinical terms is called as leptospirosis infection, is caused by spirochete bacteria. The common symptoms include fever, vomiting, lethargy, reddening of the mucous membranes and conjunctivitis. It affects cats and dogs both. A routine vaccination can help your pet to build up immunity against the disease.

  1. Actinomycosis Infection (Oral Infection)

The disease is caused by Actinomyces bacteria and is normally found in the mouth. The bacteria make its way into your pet’s body through a skin wound. It affects the lymph nodes, and you might notice a typical inflammation or node. If left untreated, this infection may spread to the abdomen or chest where pus starts to build up.

  1. Brucellosis Infection

The pet bacterial disease is caused by Brucellacanis. Dogs and cats may develop the infection during their breeding seasons. It’s highly contagious and can spread through infected urine, vaginal discharge of a female or the semen of a male dog. Chronic situations might lead to infertility and prostatitis in the male. Females might suffer unexpected abortion of their pregnancies. Sometimes, their babies get infected, which fail to survive after birth.
