    Default Skin issue? Hair loss on arms and legs only?

    Hello, has anyone experienced this yet? I'm hoping there is something like an ointment I can buy to get rid of this? He only has them on his arms and legs.

    How old is your bully?

    If under a year it could be mange,, if not it may be some type of skin infection

    He is now 4 months, I treated him for about 2-3 weeks for mange, his hair is growing back in the affected areas but now I started noticing this. Could it be residue or do I need to treat for mange again?

    Nexgard which is normally used for fleas and ticks kills mange quite well, so you may want to try using it monthly for at least 3 months if you're not already using a similar product from the same family such as Bravecto or Simparica. Advantage Multi and Revolution for heartworm also work on mange as well.

    He is on nexgard already, he has only taken 1, he is due for the next in 2 weeks, I'm also bathing him with antifungal shampoos 2 times a week, and giving him probiotics, immune system booster, multivitamins, coconut oil, anything else I can do? it looks like I'm doing everything I can, I guess only time will tell?
