In a desperate attempt to find answers, I’m reaching out to you all. My puppy, Jersey, is 11 weeks old. She’s been home with us just 3 weeks now and it’s been nothing short of a nightmare trying to figure out what’s going on with her. She has extreme hair loss on her back (not on her eyes, elbows, legs, etc.). This hair loss was seen only around her forehead and back of her neck 3 weeks ago. It’s getting worse daily. She also has had bouts of welts that rupture and turn into sores. She was treated with steroids for three days and 10 days of antibiotics and her skin cleared completely. No sores or bumps, but hair loss continued. Now, bumps are reappearing and one has ruptured into a sore with red and yellow discharge. We are at a loss. She’s seen two vets, ours and the breeder. Ours said “allergies” to food. The breeders vet said “infection” and prescribed the steroid and antibiotics. Now he wants to do more antibiotics and a culture. There was clear skin with no infection until one bump turned into a sore today. So I’m not convinced there’s an infection. Something is causing the hair loss and bumps to appear. I’ve read and re-read all I can about generalized demodex but even though she has some of the symptoms, she doesn’t have the key identifiers like hair loss around eyes, paws, elbows and legs. I just need help! Thank you!
