Skin diseases and changes of the hair coat are common in dogs and cats. In many cases inappropriate nutrition is the cause of these diseases. Because skin reacts frequently in a rather unspecific way against various noxes verification of etiology is difficult. Consequences of deficiency of protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins and trace elements as well as food intolerance and allergy are discussed.
