Pyoderma - bacterial skin infection

Pyoderma is a skin condition characterised by moist, painful, irritated skin with bacterial infection. It can occur on many areas of the body, usually as a result of trauma or disease that has caused an area of the skin to break down. Treatment is usually quick and effective with prompt veterinary care.
