    Default 1/4 inch square of fur looks different than the rest of her fur?

    We have always noticed that about a square 1/4 inch of fur on her left side always looked like it was a little different than the rest of her fur...now at 6 months it appears a bit more prominent...almost like not as much fur is in that spot...not drastically different ...but different. Does anyone know if there is something we should do? Will the spot become larger? Thanks for any thoughts.

    I'm not sure what you mean? Do you mean color, texture, thickness is different?

    Can you post a pic? I'm sure someone here may know.

    -fur-spot-maggie-jpg i hope you can see this okay. The thickness in that area is less and the little bit of darkeness .... is her skin color.... so I'm guessing there is LESS fur in that one particular area? I think if you double click it magnifies it somewhat.

    is it that little tuff of hair by the little roll of skin? It might be cause their shedding right now my dads husky would have tuff's of hair an we would pull it out but I don't suggest you do that. I really couldn't tell you what it might be did she ever have a sore their or a hotspot or something it might be that an the hairs just growing back? Sorry not really any help hope you figure it out.

    i just got out my jewelers loop (magnifier) and took a look at the area.... it almost looks like a little bit of crusty raised skin in that one area only... I'm wondering if Panolog ointment might work????

    Yes it's that little tuff.... no sores there and I'm not sure what a hotspot is... like my last reply... it appears to be one or two bits of crusty skin in that area??

    you said you have always noticed...........how long have you had her?
    what are you feeding her?

    just the normal questions to determine what it could be.

    hm i was wondering bout the demodex myself. you could put some panalog on it and see if it clears up. if not and it continues you may want to let a vet look at it.
