Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello! My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to help you with your dog today.
What kind of dog is Gracie?
If you rub those black spots, do they clean off?
If they do/don't, does the paper towel you wipe it with seem reddish?
Has she had any new foods, treats, people food?
How long has she been having this problem?
Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
I strongly suspect that this is actually an allergy to lamb.
Merrick has mainly the same ingredients in their foods, with the proteins being the change between them. Since she did fine on the Salmon, I would actually switch her back to that and see if the skin issues clear up.
If they don't, then you should have your vet take a peek and possibly do a skin scraping, just to rule out things like mites or thyroid problems, but it's too coincidental that it started once you changed to the lamb
I hope this helps.
