Thread: Balding spots on head

    Default Balding spots on head

    My 2 year old bully has recently started showing balding spots on the top of his head. At first we thought he had just hit his head on something that caused the spots, but now there are more appearing. They are only on the top of his head and don't seem to bother him. There's no redness or swelling. He hasn't had any food changes...only eats Fromm pork and peas and grain free treats, occasional apple or banana. Any ideas???

    Could be bug bites? Lambeau has a few of these right now and that is was I'm thinking cause he is on antibiotics for a tail infection and that did nit clear them up

    It could be several things… a hot spot, or the start of a skin issue. What I normally do for Wally is clean the area w/a mild soap, rinse and dry it and then use vetericyn on a cotton pad. You can buy it at some pet stores, but I got mine off Amazon. You can apply it several times a day to see if it clears up, but IF it seems to get worse or is spreading I would take him to the vet to do a skin scrape.

    I do have some Vetericyn, so I'll use that and see if it helps clear it up. Thanks!
