The pet has a fragile or thin skin, and is characterized by fragile skin that is thinner than normal. This condition is also known as skin fragility disorder, and it can occur in both cats and dogs. It is more common in senior pets that experience an overproduction of steroid hormones.

When adding a dog or cat to your family you want to make sure your pet is happy, healthy and protected. During its lifetime your pet is exposed to many illnesses and diseases and some breeds are affected by a congenital disease which is a condition existing at birth. At these moments when your pet is ill or maybe needs surgery, you want to be protected for the unexpected and high veterinarian costs.
