Default oh no

i have to take holly back to vet in morning

she has lost a lot of hair on her back, its now on her belly and i just noticed her feet are going bald, all the bald areas are red and sore and she looks so unhappy.
i dont think its ringworm as the patches and signs are different but its something. any ideas what else would cause hair loss and scabby sore and red skin

I hope Holly gets better, and I do not know what caused what happened.

sounds like an allergic reaction to something..if it was mange i think it would have come on earlier..(the treatable mange) let us know what the vet says..i am sure no matter what your vet will have an answer..maybe you can give her benedryl if it is itching

One of the best things you can do for her - unless she's picked up some weird allergic reaction to it somehow or other - is take her to the beach and get her in the salt water.

or just make the salt water, fill up the tub all the way to the top with it, and put her in it.

It's not the same thing as sea water, Sheba. Sea water has all sorts of things in it besides salt. The beach is a great healing tool for skin ailments.

Did you know that sea water and our blood has the same chemical makeup?

What are the tip if the ears like ???? With mange it gets crusty and hairless. Before we had the flea medication available today, my goldens were allegric to flea bites and would have terrible hot spots. Thank God for Advantix.!!

Sounds like mange. Dont do the ocean sea water dip things until you know, becuase mange is very painful and that sounds like it would be rubbing salt in the wound... literally!
