So Dakota is my first GSD ever not sure if this is normal for the breed, but I’m really worried. She has one small patch of what I think is dry skin on the top of her head. It started out as a tiny little white spot, so I thought she just like bumped her head or something. But then I noticed a ton of flaking in the area and almost like a raised piece of skin. She started to lose more hair so I called the vet and made an appointment but with coronavirus it’s going to be a little bit before she can be seen. Today when I woke up, it’s gotten MUCH worse and is like a flap of dead skin and her hair is sticking straight up. I don’t think it itches or bothers her, she hasn’t even attempted to scratch it with her paw. It’s not bleeding, she’s not lethargic and she’s eating so they didn’t constitute it as an emergency, but was wondering if anyone on here had any thoughts of what it could be. Really worried :(

Call your Vet and see if you can send in a picture.

Could be ringworm, mange, hotspot, injury, ect...
