I don't understand how this happened, but...seemingly out of nowhere, Gabe has a HORRIBLE irritation on his neck. It was horribly raw and weeping around where his collar sat. We were just playing outside and all of a sudden he started acting upset.
I took him inside and took his collar off, and it looked horrible! He didn't want me to touch his neck and kept trying to hide and scratch.
I clipped the hair around the area and cleaned it (quite a lot of hair came off when I was cleaning his neck up). It has since scabbed up and seems to be healing alright, but I am just shocked at the suddenness of this.
Could this be an allergic reaction? Can a dog develop an allergy to nylon?
