I didn't realize how bad his dry skin was until I just finished grooming him. Underneath ONLY his top coat where I shaved him is horrible flaky skin! I'm taking him to the vet next week. He doesn't seem to be hurting, but I've never seen a dog with skin like this before. It looks like he has a skin disease. Is this common? Does anyone have any skin treatment recommendations?
