If you end up clipping a bunch over his spine, I'd probably blanket him until the hair grows back a little.
Its starting to creep up his spine, but not as bad as it is all over his hindquarters!!! I did it again today since I wont be able to go out there until probably Sunday, or even Monday, and its pretty bad on his hindquarters. Looks like a bunch of white eggs....but they are def scabs!!!
Keep up with the treatment! As often as recommended.
Your vet may recommend antibiotics or a steroid to help kick this out of his system too.
That's the plan for now. How long does it usually take to clear up? Is this something that will most likely be a yearly thing? Or is it just random, and I got lucky with it this year?
Was thinking about giving the vet a call today, I just feel bad for the poor guy! Thanks!
