    Can you get a picture? A bald spot could be several things, from demodex mange, staph or just blowing the coat. A photo would really help

    my brain is so screwed up I was thinking today was Saturday afternoon...when I realized I finally realized it was Friday I was able to get him to the vet. Demodex. Thank god, I thought for sure it was ringworm. Will do a few dips and that should suffice. In typical bulldog fashion...vet said it was the most mites she has ever seen on any slide before. That's my Ernie!!!

    I agree with sherry, it does. Is it itchy at all? You can read more topics on this by putting it in the search bar, I know many have success with melatonin but not sure what the dosage is.
