Our 1 year old lab is currently on 1 tablet of Apoquel twice

Our 1 year old lab is currently on 1 tablet of Apoquel twice daily and 2 weeks ago got a shot of convenia. Took him in on 5/31 for an area that he was itching a lot and had been chewing paws. Had been on Apoquel already and was on a lower dose. Vet increased Apoquel dose and put him on cephalexin (ended up getting bad GI upset from antibiotic that is why a week later he got the shot of convenia).We have been doing baths 1-2 times a week with HC Relief shampoo. Itching isn't as bad and had flaking and he doesn't appear to have flaking any longer. He has lost hair on his belly area. I asked the vet if we should test thyroid but was told our lab is only 1 and they don't see thyroid issues this young (have read differently). Checked for mites and nothing.Just concerned as to why he would be losing hair on his belly (just below chest area). Could a skin infection cause this?

My son is visiting with s pug. The pug is 4-5 months old and

My son is visiting with his pug. The pug is 4-5 months old and about a month ago started to look like she had a sunburn on her forehead. It has gotten worse and is now around her legs and feet. He has taken his pug to the vet twice and they said it is not Demodectic Mange after doing a scraping but everything I've read sounds like it is. The dog's hair is thinning and she looks awful but is playful and energetic with no sign of itching. She is currently taking Amoxicillin and Clavulanate Potassium orallytwice a day. She started this on 5/27 and looks worse. She has another appointment on Monday but after two visits I am concerned that the vet is not familiar with this condition.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: No wounds. It started on her forehead and has recently spread to her legs and feet. Her forehead is the worst and the hair is thinning in both areas.JA: The Veterinarian will ask you more detailed questions to find out what is causing this. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?Customer: Nothing I can think ofJA: OK. Got it.
