Abstract

Skin diseases that affect the nasal planum and footpads of dogs are generally quite rare but, when they do occur, the two sites are often affected together and, due to their visible location, can cause considerable concern and distress for owners. Diseases range from benign cosmetic conditions to serious and life-threatening disorders, so early recognition of a problem and an accurate diagnosis are important. This article reviews the important conditions that affect the nasal planum and footpads of dogs, giving details of their clinical signs and possible treatments.
