Hi everyone. I know it has been extremely hot, and we had minimal rain. I am concerned about a possible skin infection cooper is showing symptoms of.
I am attacning pics. This is most noticeable on his blaze but I think isee something on his legs too. Please disregard the "orange" part of it, its the red clay here in NC. :/
In this pic you can't see the blaze well but if you look near his eye, his hair is almost all missing, and if you look to the left side of the blaze you'll see a circle of hair missing- but there are more areas like that just missing hair.
And his legs are so orange its hard to see, but I think its the same thing there. When I lightly curry his legs, his hair comes out in v shaped clumps.
He had rain rot last year and the vet said to put vinegar on his butt, and it cleared up quickly. My concern is what can I do that wont irritate his eyes?? Any suggestions? Has anyone seen this before? Is it from the heat? It's been pretty dry here.
