I am so sick of this issue! Two years ago duke began to lose his mane.. it then spread to his neck.. ill show pictures soon.. it only happens during the summer.. people I have talked to says its the heat. This has happened twice before! The first time it went away fairly quickly by itself... the second time it was horrible.. so a vet told me to delute bleach in a bucket filled with water.. I did so... everyday almost..for about four weeks, maybe even longer... and duke finally quit losing his hair.. I have tried MTG that did nothing but make him lose his hair more.. and I did exactly what the bottle said.. so... duke is losing his mane yet again.. I am bleaching his mane(deluted bleach that is).... but is there anything else I could try? In the past I tried miracle mist.. I found a product called happy jack's skin balm.. does anyone have experience with this product?
I refuse to let this skin problem win again and duke lose his mane! HELP! Lol
Thank you to anyone who can help me!
Heres a pic of his neck not so bad when he had it last time..
It looks like he has a thick coat- have you thought about body clipping him? If it is a fungus, maybe that will help keep it down. Also how much do you bath? Maybe you need to wash more to keep the skin/hair clean?
