My dog, a chow chow, has started losing fur and skin sores.

Customer Question

My dog, a chow chow, has started losing fur and skin sores. Now he has maggots and raw skin. It looks like puss and open wounds. I cannot afford to go to the vet for at least another week. I've been trying to keep it clean. He seems to be irritated and cries all night.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is your dog bleeding a lot?
Customer: I think so, because his fur looks wet
JA: The veterinarian will know what to do about this bleeding. I'll connect you ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about your dog?
Customer: No, just have not got shot updated, but we have never had this problem before
