Bald spot =(

My 5 month old black dobe has 2 bald spots and I'm getting nervous. One has formed a small scab on it. I don't see him itching it or being bothered by it. I can use any advice you guys might have. I have been changing his food a lot from canidea to Iams to science diet. Since the spot I have been giving him fish oil pills once a day. I'm not sure if it's the food but I'm going to be keeping him on science diet for now.

Just curious why you'd go from a fairly good food to much lower quality foods?
Have you seen the vet and had a skin scraping done?

What does he lay on?

It looks like a bacterial infection to me. I'd take him in to the vet have it checked out.

My fiancée and I had gotten into an accident and we couldn't go to work and it affected our paychecks very bad. I'm hoping it's the food and not bacterial. I have other dogs none have anything similar. I'm just surprised he isn't itching it at all but there is still a scab. He lays on the bed and couch mostly but also dirt in the backyard and tile floor. I haven't taken him to the vet yet it just scabbed yesterday.

I will toss this out there. About a month ago took a 5 month old puppy in to have a spot that looked very similar to the one in your picture, checked. Turned out to be Ringworm. Fortunately, as soon as the vet mentioned Ringworm, I washed everything good, mopped and cleaned with bleach and started applying Lamisil to the spot 3x a day. Nobody else got it, and Baylor got a couple of more spots that I also applied Lamisil to, and that was that. I used the Lamisil about 2 weeks, we re-cultured and it was negative.

Didn't look like Ringworm to me, and Baylor's spot wasn't in a typical "Ringworm" spot, according to my vet. You just don't really know.

My puppy Crow had a couple of spots like that. Took him to the vet and it was because he was scratching and eating the hair out. I hadn't noticed him scratching at all but turns out he was doing most of his scratching at night.

The vet gave me some special conditioner, and an antihistamine with a bit of steroid in it. He just finished up the pills and he still has a ton of dandruff and is kind of itchy but it's much better. The vet thought his skin was just dry from the weather.

I would take him to the vet. I know you said one is tight but sometimes it is cheaper to deal with a problem early than wait and it gets worse and more costly. Also I migh t be wrong but science diet isn't a very good pet food. I would check into the advise Rosemary gave you. I'm sure if you check on this forum there are other pet foods that are better for your boy than Science Diet and aren't too expensive. Good luck.

If you are on a budget i think Kirkland is better than Iams or Science Diet. It is also much less expensive.

First thing I would do is to get him to a vet ASAP and make sure to tell the vet of a diet change. If it is nothing more than a cut and your vet does not recommend any other treatment, then I would try these two topical creams. First is really more of a gel called EMT by Lambert Kay, available at Foster and Smith pet supply. This is a hydrolysate of collagen, it helps to seal, protect and promote healing the wound, plus helps to keep the wound from dirt, licking, etc. After the wound has healed, stop using the EMT gel and if there is a scare, then use this to help the scared area to regrow hair. This is what I use, Mederma PM scare cream twice a day. You can get at Wallyworld, etc. The younger the scare the less time it takes to heal and vice versa. Have had verry good results using this, in both my dobes and rescues/fosters. Hope this is some help..

That's the one. If you read the label you will see it also says for Ringworm. Athletes Foot is a type of Ringworm caused by a fungus. Lamisil is effective for both.

Ringworm is highly contagious to other animals and people. It can be a long, drawn out, labor intensive process to get rid of it. Ringworm spores are shed throughout the environment; furniture, carpet, etc. thus reinfecting pets and people.

Diagnosis is done via skin scraping, plucking a few hairs. It takes 10 days to get the results. Treatment, if caught early, consists of weekly baths and dips with Vet Basics ChlorConazole Shampoo and Vet Basics Lime Sulfur Dip. Much less expensive if you buy it online rather than getting it from the Vet. I found the best price at Revival Animal Health.

In more severe cases treatment will consist of an oral anti-fungal in addition to weekly baths and dips.

Additionally, you need to clean every surface your dog may have come in contact with, with a bleach/water solution (1 part bleach to 10 parts water). Spray carpets and furniture with an Anti-fungal spray (PuraCleenRX Disinfectant Spray), let set for an hour or so, and then steam clean carpets and furniture. You need to do the same with clothing, bedding, literally every fabric item your pet has come in contact with needs to be sprayed with anti-fungal spray and then washed.

Spray dogs bedding daily with anti-fungal spray and wash.

Once everything has been cleaned, it really helps to isolate the pet to one, easy to clean room.

Re-culture at 2-3 week intervals until you get 2 negative cultures.

Vet visit needed.

Absolutely no Vaseline as this will cause any fungal type infection to "bloom" like crazy. It's concerning that you got a puppy but you don't really have enough money to take the puppy to the vet when necessary. Hope that you can figure out a way to either purchase insurance or save some money every month for future problems. If you hang around the forum you will see that Dobermans are not cheap to keep!

Rosamburg is right - Kirkland foods are much better quality than Iams or Science Diet for much less. I fed the Kirkland Chicken and Rice formula for years and my dogs did very well on them. The cost is about $30 for a 40 pound bag of food. If I was in financial difficulty that is an immediate change I would make again. Very decent food for the price. Costco is a good place to save money if you are smart about it.

If you really, really cannot afford a vet visit, I would probably try treating as if it's ringworm, in case it is, because you do not want it to spread. You can get a generic version of Lamisil at Target or Walmart. You do need to make sure your dog does not lick the ointment off so you may need to get a cone for him.

I can take him in for a visit I just can't afford the hundreds of dollars they are gonna charge me for unneccessary things. I gave him an oatmeal bath today so I will see if that helps along with the lamisil until we get to the vet. Thank you all

If they want you to put him on an antihistamine instead of buying from the vet ask about over the counter alternatives. I know lots of people who buy the generic benadryl for their dogs with allergies. If it's a prescription try to get it filled at your local pharmacy instead of buying at the vet. I do this for my dog's anxiety meds and I save well over $30. Those are some options to save money.

If they want to do two or three diagnostic things make them do one at a time and pay for them that way. For example (have no idea if they would do this for this situation but just in general) if they wanted to do a skin scrapping, a fecal, and an xray ask for them to do one at a time, only doing the next one if nothing shows up in the first. I learned this the hard way. A vet "sold" me a whole range of diagnostic procedures and it turned out that I would have only needed the first two but I ended up having to pay for them all.

If they think it might be related to food allergies as others have mentioned the kirkland brand of food is good for cheap, as well as 4health. I'm not sure about 4health but I know that kirkland has a grain free alternative called nature's domain.

I'm also on a very tight budget so I do my best to save money where I can while still trying to give my dogs the best care possible.

Thank you very much for your advice! It seems to be less irritated after the oatmeal bath. I'm hoping it goes away. I didn't even think about Benadryl! If it shows any sign of getting worse or is not gone by next weekend I'll be taking him in. I contacted the man I got him from to see if he knew why this might happen and he admitted that the father had a similar issue but he said he never brought him to the vet. Not sure if that was true or not

It is my personal opinion veterinary's get a kick back for selling science diet has a lot of fillers in it not a good food corn,soy those two ingredients can cause skin problems. I hope when you change foods you are changing slowly less tummy upsets that way.

I just wanted to throw this out there, are you also giving Vitamin E with the fish oil?

I can understand it can get hard when something changes a financial situation- if you can change his food to better quality, I would start with that.

I found this and I have no idea if it would be of benefit and maybe others can chime in. Apple cider vinegar (w/ the mother) is amazing and I personally drink a Tablespoon a day. But I stumbled upon this article for dogs.

I hear people say this a ton, but when my vet recommended I start giving fish oil to Crow she said their was no need to give Vitamin E with it.

I am fully stocked on Kirkland puppy and we will be sticking to that until adulthood and then maybe switch but I think we are sticking to Kirkland. He actually takes the fish oil and eats it willingly which is good. It's definetly not getting worse and it just looks like thinking of hair not completely baldness so this is good. I may bring him in to the vet this weekend if there's no change. Thank you everyone again. I heard vitamin e oil you could put directly onto the skin but i haven't tryed it.
