I have taken my 2 years old male Pomeranian to numerous vets

I have taken my 2 years old male Pomeranian to numerous vets because his hair color and texture are changing. One vet said he had a thyroid problem without any blood work and another said he had a skin allergy.I suspect he has black skin disease. Do I need to do any tests? Is there anything I can do to help him? I heard about a rescue cream and special shampoo and conditioner. Do those work? Also I read I should give him 1 mg of melatonin per day.Do you advise I do this?He was neutered when he was 6 months old. He also has a grade 2 severity tracheal collapse. He was very overweight (5.5 kilos) but has been on on a strict diet and has already lost weight. What do you advise for me to do please. I also noticed his belly is a darker color now. Thank you.

My 8 yo Boxer (neutered male) was treated for a mast cell

My 8 yo Boxer (neutered male) was treated for a mast cell tumor about four months ago. Lately he's had days when he sleeps most of the day, other days he feels better. Now he has a lump on his neck, about where the neck meets the shoulder, about the size of a grape and firm. Any thoughts?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP.
