    Default What is this ? With pic

    d hi as some may know I've had my bully for around a month. I've noticed she has a perfect circle of I think what is hair loss ? It's not sore I haven't seen her scratching it though she has been scratching a bit more but she is shedding a little more that usual ATM I think cos the weathers changing. She has been on the same food she came with still and having no problems with it. She is nearly 5 months old, anyone know ?

    Is the area dry or just the loss of hair?

    hi
    her coat is in perfect condition it's silky soft and this is the only area, it's as though the hair is thinning in just that very neat circle, it's not red or sore as u can see I just don't know what it is

    Castor actually has something that looks a bit similar on his chest/shoulders (two spots, one on each side). Not irritated, not red, just a bit bald. We think it might come from his harness rubbing against his skin, but switchng to another harness hasn't really helped, so I don't know. Can it be something like that?

    No she doesn't wear a harness she has a collar, she doesn't pull on leash just walks at the side with a slack leash so never needed to. So nope it can't be that, thanks anyway x

    Could be a ringworm.

    Yes, I was going to say-keep an eye on it. If it spreads--or if she gets other patches, I was thinking Ringworm. David read my mind-how'd he do that?

    Well after your advise I just googled ring worm and seen some pics and it looks like it could be that, I'm pleased it's not actual worm related but a fungus ! I will get her in with the vet and let them have a look, she came from a place that she shared beds with other dogs and it was some what a kennel and she is a pup and they r the main causes so most likely that. Thanks guys x

    Looks like ringworm or demodex. If it is demodex, the area will start to het bigger and turn red and scaly. You may also start seeing other bald spots in other areas. If it is ringworm, it is easy to cure. Just get some athletes foot or jock itch cream and use as directed for 4 weeks. Its the same fungus. Hair takes 6 weeks to grow back.
    The only way to diagnose demodex is with a skin scrape at the vet. He can also immediately tell you if it is ringworm.
    For those people who have bald spots on shoulders at vaccine injection sites, those are usually caused by a reaction to a vaccine injection(usually rabies). The hair never grows back if that is the case

    Ringworm will often( not always!) glow under a blacklight. Scorpions and cat urine do also.

    Vegas had demodex when he was 6 months old. The area was just a small area with a loss of hair. Not scaley or red.

    The second time he started losing hair in patches it wasn't ring worm OR demodex. It was some sort of fungus....that cleared up with antibiotics.
