What Is Hyperkeratosis In Dogs?
The four stages of Jake yawning 🙂
I had just brought the pups home from their “spa day” and they are always worn out. Jake’s favorite place is on the couch and that was where he headed as soon as we walked in the door.
Hyperkeratosis can be either genetic or non-genetic, although it isn’t commonly tested for. In either case, the prevention and treatment remain the same. The only difference is which common triggers are most likely to blame for flare-ups.
Interestingly enough, hyperkeratosis can happen in the same way to the nose. Nasal hyperkeratosis (or “crusty nose”) is slightly more of an enigma than the type that occurs on the feet.
