if it were mange it would have spread and it would be very itchy. The elbow is a callous. Have you had her thyroid checked? That could cause that.

And the food you're feeding is the absolute worst out there. Good idea to switch!

Rafi has mange right now. His skin is black and if I don't treat it right away it gets scabby too. It progresses very quickly into a bald patch.

It could be a lot of things including allergies to the food or a flea or environmental allergy. But the description made me think of descriptions of skin problems because the thyroid isn't functioning properly.

We could suggest lots of good foods for you but a lot of it depends on what kind of stores you have nearby. Do you have any smaller stores that carry the higher quality brands?

This website, while not perfect, does teach you how to read labels.
