Thread: Bald spots

  1. #13

    Default

    Two days ago I noticed a small bald patch on Peyton. It's on the top of her hips, right in the spot people like to scratch. I thought maybe she is just sensitive from too much love, but I think I'll try anti fungal shampoo to be sure. Any suggestions on brand? Any possible negative side effects (like making dry skin worse?)

    I just noticed 2 of these spots yesterday on Tater. One on his neck and this one a little farther down his back. He did just have a bath a couple days prior but hasn't had reactions in the past. He eats Blue Buffalo Wilderness but has been since he was brought home, he'll be 9 months old next week.

    My Rampage gets periodic bald spots, the vet here has attributed them to his seasonal allergies. Poor baby is allergic to grass so if he goes outside and rolls around and I don't get him rubbed down well enough with warm water or spray shampoo, he gets a few bald spots. The skin gets dry first and then the hair will fall out. I've found that fish oil added to his food seems to help quite a bit as does keeping him on antihistamine during the trouble allergy periods of the year. This year it's been so bad that I'm having all of the Russian Olive trees in my yard cut down as his reverse sneezing has been out of control.

    It's hard to tell from the pictures, is it scaly or smelly? raw or dry? how often are you shampooing?

    It is dry, he gets shampooed about once a month with a oatmeal and aloe shampoo. I spoke to the vet, she said keep an eye on it for a week and if it doesn't get better to bring him in.

    Oatmeal and Aloe are for itch's, and Personally, I don't care for them. I'd rather use a antibacterial wash and rinse. The final rinse of 1 gallon with 1 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar. Leave it on and don't rinse off. Not saying this will cure the two spots that are hairless, but it might. And it will make the skin clean and ph balanced.
