I would think zinc deficiency. Or weak immune system. Zinc is indicated for skin, hair and immune function
SeaVive (online - from Proper Nutrition) along with probiotic and digestive enzyme.
SeaVive is a combo product of bovine colostrum and SeaCure (a predigested fish protein that delivers essential amino acids, readily digested without taxing the pancreas as doesn't require enzymes to break down)....Bovine Colostrum was used back in the day as natural antibiotic before abx. were the go to drug. Colostrum is thought to work the way the thymus glad would to regulate inflammatory responses as seen in allergic reactions. Immune modulator.
If Demodex, then this would be HUGE help as demodex is a symptom of weak immunity. If allergic - again, colostrum contains immunoglobulins IgG, IgA, IgM

It looks like demodectic mites, reminds me of when Harry had it when he was a puppy.
The only way to confirm is for the vet to do a scraping of the skin and examine under a microscope (they will see the mites if present)
I used a product called Advocate http://www.pets-megastore.com.au/adv...027d40c6f55c28 which worked really well on Harry and cleared up the mites, however he did get is again 2 more times when he was a puppy but hasn't had it for almost 2 years now.

|DHau||Wow! Something so simple fixed Dex. Lucky you. Was this plain yogurt and fresh blueberries or a blended yogurt? Are you still using this?|

This was Dex at around 7 months. He was having some allergy issues however the vet felt it had to do with puppy immune system since he was growing fast. I added yogurt and blueberries to his food. It took about 3 weeks, but it cleared up with no meds.

|DHau||The pics look familiar. I am thinking allergy related.|

|junos mum||Juno had her biopsy on Monday and I expect to get the results next week. Her snout and over her eyebrow were shaved which made her look worse.|

|junos mum||Junos scratching of her nose got worse and the skin is very red. Visited the vet who gave 3 weeks antibiotics and we made an appointment to go back in 3 weeks with the intention of booking her in for sedation for biopsy and skin scrape. Vets is thinking auto immune disease not so much allergy. Will have to wait and see.|

|junos mum||My gsd Juno, 2 yr old spayed, has exactly the same and I've been looking for a solution for a couple of months. Her hair loss is slightly more than in Bob McBobs photo and is also close to her mouth and even on top and bottom lips, skin is red. Eyebrow area also scabbed from scratching. Hard to see the full extent except in direct sunlight. Vet gave her antibiotics as he thought the skin was slightly infected. Juno is raw fed since 12th October and both vets we have seen are inclined to blame the raw feed, allergic to raw meat, not getting vital supplements that exist in regular commercial feed, etc. Her eyes were very red and gunky until the antibiotics. Just this week I was given the name of a holistic remedies person who I am m going to send hair sample to in the hope they can find the cause.|
