    Hobbs has patches like this

    Would you say it's the same? No pain or itching.

    That is no SFA.... That looks like a staph infection--- are they scabs that come off easily with some fur? How old is Hobbs?

    No scabs. Hobbs is 4-5 years old. We have an appointment with a vet Thursday so we can get Heartworm and flea prevention

    Have you seen any fleas? I don't treat until I see them and we haven't had any in years but we think some came home on my kids clothes. Any who.. I found out very quickly that Biscuit my EB was allergic to them. We treated her right away and the itching stopped but it did leave similar patches like in your picture. Or he could be scratching for another reason like allergies. Good luck and please update on what the vet says.

    Here is a photo(though not flattering to Maude) of SFA.-maudeandmartha-jpg Her hair grew back on one side-but not the other. I believe Melatonin is more important BEFORE they get it than after. The round spots where a chunk of hair is out, is not the same. @CCandMurray the dark skin area under the hair is sfa on Murray. If you just have one dog,you can rub NuStock on the hairless areas-it help hair grow. I could not because the other dogs lick it off!(a downside of more than one dog..........)

    Thanks so much Lynn! Do you think he needs melatonin too? Or should I just keep an eye on it if it gets worse?

    It certainly wouldn't hurt to give Melatonin @CCandMurray 3 mg at night.
