    Best I could get I’m afraid, maybe if you click them you can zoom in but not sure…he has a real problem with cameras and mobiles and we have no idea why, first one is his ear, same on both sides, dark pigmentation and no fur.

    Thanks all, think we’d better get to the vet again for a scrape to be taken

    aww bless his little blad patches, hope you get to the bottom of it  :-*

    as a side note milbemax doesn’t just kill collies  😉

    Got an appointment for Wednesday, Val/Bev have you seen anything like this before?  Any ideas what I can expect re skin scrape, will they just check it, then get back to us with the results?  Am torn because we have seen two vets now and I haven’t been exactly happy with either diagnosis re his muzzle [I just know he hasn’t caught it and got an infection, it seems like something else is going on] or them both suggesting the Malaseb but we’ll have to go to one of them, unless anyone here knows a good vet in Tyne & Wear?

    Thanks Val, he does scratch it, both his muzzle and his ears, we tried aloe vera and his muzzle started to clear up so we didn’t go the allergy route because it started to heal and wasn’t red or sore looking, the fur has started to grow back but he still has bald patches and this week has been scratching and the fur is falling out again.  The ears are patchy all over under the fur, and discoloured like in the picture in two/three patches on each ear.  Don’t understand where it has come from, just know it has been getting worse then better for the last few weeks.  When we saw the vet last it was just the muzzle that was like this, that was the time that she said buy the Malaseb shampoo and wanted to give antibiotics, that was when I said I wanted to try calendula/aloe and the aloe really soothed it and stopped the itch.

    jesus so they offered antibis and malaseb when they didnt even know what was wrong?  ::)

    I still think they should have done or should do a skin scrape.

    #81933

    Yep, both vets at diff practices say terriers led by the nose, he’ll have caught it on something and gotten an infection, not convinced but hey, we been dog owners for 6 months, who knows best?

    #81934

    ::) ok so its a possibility – but what if it not that which it now looking very unlikely – am totally off vets tongiht so dont even get me started  >:(  >:(  >:(
