There is no redness. I just checked him and did notice that some of the spots on his stomach and under his arm are a brownish color and not black. When I first notice the spots a week ago the ones on his back seemed black.
He is not significantly overweight. You can still see his waist and feel his ribs. No pot belly.
He doesn't lick his feet but he does lick around his tail. Some years ago the vet told me that licking was because of an allergy. I should also tell you that he has a dry flaky skin on his back that I was told was a skin problem that many schnauzers are prone to have.
None of the spots are raised on the skin.
To the Expert:
I do not understand the concept of the deposit plus the matching 10%. I agreed to pay $9 initially. Is this in addition to the $9?
