Skin Diseases with Pus Drainage in Dogs
This table lists diseases in which the predominant sign is skin infection or pyoderma. Pyoderma is characterized by pus, infected sores, scabs, ulcers of the skin, papules, pustules, furuncles, boils, and skin abscesses. The skin infection is often secondary to some other skin disease, particularly an itchy skin disease that causes the dog to attack her own skin.
