will pup change fur?

JOJO used to have nice fur when she was only 2 or less month old..

but currently I found out the fur just not smooth and look like there are lumps under the fur.. I am not sure is she changing fur or having sensitive skin...

I feed her can food mix rice and I dont think is kurap or the food problem.. As well didn't see any fur dropping off..

The fur look more rough right now.. so.. anyone any ideas why will this happen?

Re: [shyeow2] will pup change fur?

Hi shyeow2

I remember my lil sidnee started with the same problem. Having red bumps and then the fur became coarse, rough and lost its shine. Then they started dropping. Initially I thought it was hot spots but my vet told me it's pimples.

Is it all over the body? Does your doggie smells (odour) soon after a bath, say after 3 days? These may be signs of skin problem. I'd suggest you watch her closely, if the fur starts dropping then you had better act fast. Since you have ruled out food, I think you should be careful of infections. Hope you can get to the root of JOJO's problem fast.

Warmest Regards

Hi shyeow2

Yep, after sidnee's ordeal (she has demodex) I would definitely recommend that you take your precious to a vet a.s.a.p. But then you have to be careful - that there is no mis-diagnosis. That happened to my little sidnee.

All the best to you
