In veterinary medicine, skin diseases, regardless of their etiology, record an increased frequency, mostly because humans are sharing the same lifestyle with their quadrupeds. The purpose of this paper was to present the evolution of skin pathology in dogs and cats, in conjunction with the reactivity of the body towards the pathogenic germs also towards the conditioning or opportunistic pathogens. For the identification and diagnosing of dermatitis, in a private veterinary clinic there were examined 18 animals (12 dogs and 6 cats), which showed skin lesions and intense itching. There were diagnosed 5 cases of dermatitis with parasitic etiology, 7 cases of allergic dermatitis (of which 2 cases showed secondary bacterial otitis), 1 case of autoimmune etiology and 5 cases of infectious etiology. In the case of bacterial dermatitis, good results were obtained with treatments based on antibacterials selected by antibiogram, with antipruritic substances, and topical therapeutic baths. Bacteriological examination on special culture media revealed the presence of mainly Staphylococcus species in the pathological material collected from the skin lesions. In the case of parasitic dermatitis, favourable results were obtained by applying spot-on pipettes containing Moxidectin and by administering oral or otic Ivermectin. In allergies, the treatment was effective after allergen elimination, administration of antipruritic substances, followed by therapeutic baths to ensure decontamination of body surface area.
