We have a five year old wheaten terrier who now has two dark

Customer Question

we have a five year old wheaten terrier who now has two dark spots - the skin below looks fine but it looks like two 1" diameter spots with reddish brown hair instead of the wheat color it should be. She does not chew at her back (they are on her middle back area where her spine is) and she does not have fleas or ticks and not sure if I should take her to the vet or see if another one presents. Thank you for any information you can provide. Toby Levi, Boca Raton FL p.s. we take her out to relieve herself but don't walk her in the heat of the day as it's just too hot and the pavement would be detrimental to her paws.

I'm Dr. Jo and I'm a licensed veterinarian with more than twenty years of experience. I'm here to help with your question about Hannah.
I'm so sorry you're having this problem, but glad you're looking for the information you need. You may join the conversation at any time by typing in what you want to say then clicking REPLY or SEND. Then we can chat back and forth until you're satisfied with the information I've provided. I'll do my best to earn your good rating, because that's the only way I receive any compensation for helping you.
In the meantime, in order to help me help you better, I'll need some more information. To start with, can you please tell me:

  • Does Hannah appear to have any unexplained weight gain?
  • Is she excessively thirsty?
  • Is she overall itchy at other locations on her body?

I'll be standing by and awaiting your reply. Thank you.
