Scabs, sores, losing hair
When I first got Penny she has constant skin issues, she has puppy pyoderma twice and then it cleared up for a while. But she has the red bumps/sores on her belly again along with several other issues....
She has/had scabs all over the top of her back from the base of her tail to midway up her spine. She also has black spots on the inside of her front legs and the outside of her back legs with reddish bumps that she chews at. She does not have fleas so I know she isnt itching because of fleas. But she is ALWAYS scratching and chewing herself. She has started to lose some fur on the inside of her front legs and again on the outside of her back legs. Her fur on her back is really brittle and bunches of the hair comes out with the scabs.
I have an appointment for the vets on Friday morning (thats the earliest they could get me in) so I was wondering if any of you could please give me some insight as to whats going on with my dogs skin??
So to recap... red bumps/sores on her belly, scabs on her back, black and reddish skin with fur loss on the inside of her front legs and the outside of her back legs.
I can try to take some pictures if that will make a difference.
