Customer Question

I have a miniature poodle that is 17 years old. She was adopted from a pound several years ago. Lately she had had a black crusty skin condition on her forehead and some other parts of her body. Shampooing her with medicated dog shampoo has not helped. What is it and how can I get rid of it?
