Customer Question
My dog is losing...

My dog is losing a lot of hair around his privates with what looks like scans on his parts. He’s constantly panting and is starting to have some discoloration in his nose. I’ve been out of work for a while so he hasn’t been up on his preventative medicine. He’s all in all a happy dog but I just feel like something is not right.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your dog?

Hair loss on his privates and scabs

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Oliver. He’s 1.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Oliver?

He’s a chocolate lab. And I don’t know if they are more sensitive to certain things.

With him being such a young pup it may just be some allergies which can turn into a bacterial skin infection.

Can you send me some pictures of the lesions so i can see what we are dealing with?
