    Bald spots and scabs

    Hello, Our baby Buster has been shedding for about 6 months now. We have him on Vet3 caps similar to fish oil, but it doesn't seem to be helping his coat. In fact, recently he's developed scabs on the bald spots in his body. I've read that perhaps Melatonin might help out. Has anyone had his...
