    Default Little Cognac is losing her hair :(

    Hello Bulldoggers,

    My little princess Cognac is one year old and i've noticed little white circle with her hair coming off from her skin 4 days ago and now when i combed her hair its actually gotten bigger and other spots have shown. Im not sure what it is, and honestly my budget wont allow me to go to the vet till next week. Does someone know how i can cure this at home, please help.

    I did the search and it looks like a ringworm but honestly its not red or anything and she doesnt really get bothered from it.


    Merci

    This could be brought on by an allergy, just clean it and put some hydrogen peroxide on it and maybe some hydrocordizone cream on it. It could also be from a mite, but only your vet can tell with a scraping.

    Check for fleas. I once had a dog that was allergic to flea bites and she started losing her hair in little patches. We had to switch her flea medicine (from one that interpreted the life cycle to one that killed after a meal) and in a few weeks she had all her hair back.

    I agree this could be allergies or something else...no way to tell without the vet doing a skin scrape...Until you can get to the vet keep it clean and like others said you some bacitracin...Maybe the vet can see you and agree to do payment plan ( we did that when Brutus had his surgery 3 grand later) Its worth a shot to see...ALso if you want there is Care Credit which is great for us humans as well as our pets health...Check it out and you can use it for things like this..Let me know if you need anything

    Gypsy had that and it turned out to be mange. It is common so don't panic! But they will need to be treated as soon as you can manage. Personally, I would head in to the vet when you can and have them do a scraping to make sure. Could be infection, ringworm, allergy....but you won't be able to know without the scraping first.

    Agreed. My bulldog has something similar, shes been losing lots of her hair, shedding like crazy, and she has those little circle dry patches (baldspots?) I took her to the vet to get a allergy panel done as well as a skin scrape, I'm awaiting my results.

    You may want to research seasonal Flank alopecia. My last bully had it - and it kinda looked like what you have. Clearly it may not be it at all, Maybe google it and use the images search. Compare the photos you see with Cognac; the good news is - if it ends up being SFA, it's not the end of the world. Cognac won't hurt, and with the proper care its manageable. Duchess only had it for one season, and it was gone.

    Perhaps skin allergies, if so, not quick fix. I do raw food, did wonders for loss of hair, but it a slower acting cure because it is natural. Also to get the hair growing back, Vitamin E, rubbed into that spot, once a day, will get the hair to growing back, dont stop using it until hair is back covering the spot. I use this on Emma skin, never has failed me.
