    Hi Roger, it's hard to tell what it is, but you mentioned that you were playing with her, was she running around a lot? she is mostly white like my Blossom, and when she runs around or plays hard, she turns pink under her fur, she gets like a pink flush, and then it goes away. I don't know if that's what is happening to Sky. Hopefully that's all it is, but keep an eye on it, it could also be the start of hot spots, I don't have any experience with these, I have seen them. Other members have had hot spots and can maybe give more advice. I hope it's nothing serious.

    They are near? You mean on his fur? Have you tried to wash it off?
    If on the skin could you part the fur so we can have a better look xx

    What I have read about hot spots is that the area should be shaved and cleaned and kept dry. You can soak the hot spots in Epsom salts and warm water or vinegar and warm water.

    i would have your vet do a scrape to check for mange or a dermatitis... Since it is in several places, small spots tends to think it might not be a hot spot... The one pic does look like it could be, but with several small makes me think differently, so a vet check is my suggestion

    Could be allergies too. Also try adding fish oil pills to his diet.
    Curly use to get missing patches (I think from flea and/or mosquito allergies) and the fish oil pills helped clear up the little missing patches of fur issue.

    Booboobutt had same issue but I had no idea it was there until I brushed her or she would be on her back acting silly so I thought. It wasn't there when I brushed her however I believe I helped flare it up when I gave her a really good combing. Prior to this day she was almost blowing her coat I thought, only until a couple days later did I feel this almost hardness to her spot on her back which seemed large to me. Medicated bath using medicated shampoo from the vet and then a medicated oatmeal rinse which I bought at pet supply plus called Tropiclean oxyMED for many things such as hot spots and seborrhea, scaling, dermatitus, to say a few but it said it also stops the itching fast. That was the first day and for several days after that first day I would just wash the area only and then do the rinse but I also started her on fish oil and probiotics. Today her coat shedding is so minimal I barely even notice and wow is it shiny and soft almost like silk, completely nothing like it was before The rinse is soap free. We are making progress in finding out what is best for my girl. She actually will stay still as I rub my hand down her back over that spot as well without licking the air or the wiggle butt itch now. Now it could be one or all of the above that did it, I am not sure but I just know for my girl changes happened without the need of going to the vet (I had the medicated shampoo from prior vet visit from allergy to a food she was on) and now she eats Fromm so hopefully we will continue heading forward with the learning. I hope you can get her cleared up and know what is causing this.

    Could be the starting of a hotspot. wash it with some antibacterial soap and dry. You can also use some Vetericyn on it too.
