Help!

Major has re-occurring crusty spots popping up all the time (Back and legs)His hair is easily pluckEd from these places. What is this? He’s 7 1/2 years old.

He has gone through many antibiotics and steroids and it still keeps coming back.

Thanks for any help

Can you post pics?!! Has the vet done a skin scrape to rule out mange or a staph infection?

Sounds like it might be staph infection…. Need strong round of antibiotics and you also need to strengthen his immune system….. Keifer, raw goats milk, sauerkraut, or Herbsmith microflora

as Tracey asked… can you post pictures! How old is your boy? What are you feeding.. brand and protein?

Agree with aforementioned...especially the skin scraping/sensitivity test to make sure you are dosing the correct, most effective antibiotic.
Many Vets will give too short of a course of medications. Some dogs need at least 6 weeks.
