Fur Sloughing Off

Animal: Dog
Breed: Staffie

Pet Symptoms: my dog lost some fir on his neck, and where the fir has come away it’s weeping black in places.

Our Advice:  It sound like Rad might have pyodermia. This is bacterial infection on the skin. You can try to shave the hair around it and scrub it very well  with warm water 2-3 times per day but Rad will need antibiotics. The best advice will be to contact your vet for appointment. They will give you antiseptic to clean it and antibiotics to sort out the infection.
