Hi, My dog has dry hard skin near both ear entrance, where he is loosing hair. he also has it on his armpits. it feels very dry lumpy. He also has a bump on his head where he has lost hair.
He is a 11 year old Pomeranian cross Chihuahua. his fur is no longer smooth but dry and frizzy Any suggestions? his vet is saying its from old age. I've also notice that he's not as energetic as he was a few months ago and that he eats alot and does not like to walk (he used love walking)
Thanks for your answer
He has been putting weight on, and drinking a lot of water and urinating a lot. Sometimes he will be walking and he will be dripping urine out. Ive attached a photo as well. he has these patches on both sides of the head.
Is it possible that he can have both?
I guess I'll have to get a second vet to have a look at him.
What sort of meds does he require for this?
Well I took him to a different vet yesterday. The new vet came up with cushings as well and suggested we do a blood test first - we will get the results back on Monday - and based on the result's we'll decide if we need to test for cushings as you suggested,
Thanks so much for your help
