Know Canine Disease. Here is an example:
Zinc-Responsive Dermatosis: This disorder causes scaling and crusting of the skin. It is not due to a dietary deficiency of zinc; instead affected dogs appear to have a higher than normal requirement for zinc, perhaps due to abnormal intestinal absorption. As the name implies, the skin condition improves with zinc supplementation. Young fast-growing puppies of large breeds such as Doberman pinschers and Great Danes sometimes experience a similar condition due to a transient zinc deficiency.
