Thread: bald spot

  1. #1

    Default bald spot

    my 2.5 human year old shiba inu has completely removed all hair from the inside of her rear hind leg in a circle about 5 sq cm in size. she has been starching there more than usual and i have noticed large amounts of mosquitoes around but i didnt think they could penetrate her dense coat to get to her skin to bite her. any suggestions before another vet visit would be greatly appreciated. thanx in advance.

    Could it be ring worm? or maybe allergic reaction to mosquitoes?

    Perhaps post a pic Maybe then one of the vet's on here may see and have an idea.

    thanx pawfectionist
    shortly after this post my laptop died and only jst got a new 1. shes better now. even tho I thought it wasnt fleas, later that day i found a flea on my other dog. i used an oral flea treatment and over a 2-3 day period we put oatmeal paste on the spot which even tho she immediately licked it, did obviously soothe her. 3 weeks later and shes fine.

    Hi 'Marc Pienovi' - belated to the forum !

    Really pleased that you have found the reason why your poor pup ended up with a 'bald patch' on her leg. Fleas can be a real pain !
