My beagle have skin problem. Seek help!! Can't Post

Hello Everyone,

I'm owning a 5mths old beagle name Nero. Just recently I found out that the small patch of missing coat (coin size) is getting bigger & bigger so I went to the vet. During my last last visit there he said there was nothing wrong with him & it was just some allergy. Nero was then given a jap and some medication. His conditions improved and there were much much less shedding after that. Just last week he had the same problem again. I find that he is scratching much more and his terrible sheeding got back. There were new patches on his back and side body. This time the vet diagnose that it was enzema.

His symtoms :-

- Initially, just a round patch of missing fur (not total gone, where u can see the skin but it was obvious if u look closely.)

- Started with 1 patch then more and more.

- Bumps on skin when i touch.

- After medication by the vet the infected area turn to slightly red & eventually drying up

- His fur will drop of together with the dried skin still sticking on it.

Anyone care to help me & share their experience?

Thank you so much.Smile

--Ann

ermm...hie Ann...what did the vet said to do?? Did he recommend any medication or cream to apply?? Are the spots really blad or just a little...the flakes you are saying...is it dandruff like?? It's just near the belly and at the backside is it?? No red spots on his belly?? I think Sara has what Nero has too...not too sure...

Hello Louise,

Thanks for replying. Actually, his condition looks bad to me. So "sum tong" seeing his skin like that.

Anyway, i don't think it is dandruff as it is his infected skin (sore) which dried up and drop off.Frown I hope drying up means his skin is getting better...I will also be bringing him to the seaside to swim this weekend. Heard that sea water is good for healing skin problem....must also find a spot that there is noyone swimming else.....ShockedShocked

Yes, the vet did gave my cream to apply on his skin. At times it is quite difficult to apply to so many areas...have to part his hair & holding him still...

Hmm...<sigh><sigh>Unsure visiting the vet so often definately burns a hole in my pocket liow.

Hope his conditions will get better but I still don't know why he got this in the first place. He just stay inside the hse all the time.

Last night when i aply the cream on him he was okay..kinda like me rubbing his skin...hehehe..."Yat Si Yat Yeong"Tongue

Looks like his skin is getting better already with less red spots..the infected part which was previously "botak" has also some baby hair coming out. SmileSmile

Will still bring him go swimming this weekend...hope he will like the water. Hmm...the only think i'm worried about is that there are sea "kutu" that will stick to his body. Do u think sea kutu is harmful to dogs????
