A study was undertaken to determine the prevalence of different dermatological conditions in dogs during the period from May 2018 to April 2019. Out of total 19,668 dogs, presented in the Belgachia Veterinary Clinics, 1420 (7.22%) dogs were diagnosed as dermatoses. Most of the skin disorders were observed during rainy season (9.32%) followed by summer season (7.49%). The dogs above one year of age were the most affected (74.6%). Both sexes of dogs were infected by skin disorders (female: 58.4% and male: 41.6%). Results of the present study revealed that Labrador were more predisposed to various dermatological disorders (29.9%) followed by Spitz (13.7%).
