My dog is a 10 year old Male Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. These scabby patches keep cropping up around his stomach, chest and neck, despite having no previous skin problems besides slight dandruff. He has completed his annual flea/worm/parasite treatment, and we took him to the vets… To be met with baffled faces! The vet prescribed medicated fungal shampoo, which seemed to clear up one patch, only for another to crop up elsewhere. She also did a hair follicle test for ringworm which came back negative.
I’m just posting here with hope that someone has come across or experienced this before, as these patches do not seem to be affecting my dog, but they are itchy and seem to irritate him on occasion. The scabs can be removed (when he lets us) fairly easily and painlessly, along with a clump of hair. Can anyone please give suggestions as to what this could be/how to go about treating it?!
