    Hi Becky, I don't have any experience with this, and its hard to tell from the pictures exactly what it is, but from what I've read on here it may be Demodex Mange?

    My Bella used to get those along her spine… sometimes she would lose hair in that area. I basically treated them as allergies… it could be food, shampoo or environmental allergies. What type of food are you feeding him?!!

    Mange? Brett has small patches that hair loss too and slightly red but no foul smell, bumps
    or scabies. So I'm thinking allergies. Switched his food to TOTW yesterday slowly.

    I would say allergies. It might not be his food, Matilda gets them from being exposed to grass. The hair loss is usually due to her scratching, because the grass makes her itchy. Her paws and wrinkles get irritated too. Go to the vet to find out for sure!

    Sorry i keep asking, but are they crusty/dry scabs or like dry skin? Also, in one of the first pictures you post , it looks like they are on his neck/back, is that right and is all his hair thinning?
