    Default what is this..?!

    Help please

    About a week ago I noticed a small bald patch on Meeko and the skin looked black and raised slightly.
    I thought perhaps he had bumped himself running around.

    Now his fur has a few bald patches and scabs/sore areas and it seems an area of black skin under the furr (see pics)
    He is acting normal
    eating and drinking normal
    stools are healthy shape & size
    No food has changed
    ive checked for any signs of worms/fleas and can't see anything

    im terrified as first thing that came up on google said cancer.

    To add; about a month ago we found a mouse in the house with droppings in and around the dog biscuits. We are not sure how long Meeko had been eating the food before we found the mouse problem. The food is changed and the mouse problem has gone now and as a precaution used flea and worm treatment.

    I have no idea what that is… could be allergies, or a skin infection?!! I would take him to the vet for a skin scrape because it looks as though some of his hair looks thinner in areas, like a patch of something… As tempting as it is, PLEASE don't google the symptoms!!! I do it to, and it always gives me a heart attack Good luck and keep up posted!!!

    It's round like ringworm, could be mange but I don't think so. Best to have the vet do a scrape to find out for sure. Welcome back!

    I would let a vet look at it, could just be from allergies, but also could be mange. Glad you are back, and please keep us posted.

    Thanks all. He has an appointment at the vets today so will hopefully get an answer. One of my friends is training to be a vet and I sent her the pics and she said seasonal allergies where the skin is black underneath the bald patches and because its along his sides.. has anybody ever herd of this? She said bulldogs boxers and a few other breeds more commonly get. The redness has gone now so I think I irritated it when I was bathing and brushing him but its still patchy furr with black skin!

    Bella would get seasonal alopecia… she would have thin hair on her sides, but I honestly don't remember it being black. She was a brindle, so her skin had patches of black anyway. I would give her benadryl on her really bad days, but I never had allergy testing done for her.

    It looks like a form of staph. We have an American bulldog and she has bumps similar to those. She's on medicine for it.
