1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited.

Balding while blowing coat?  HELP! Empty

Hey everyone!

So Baron and I just move to Seattle from Florida and he is experiencing his first winter coat she being 1 year old this past month.

During this however he developed a bald patch above his left eye, then one on his right lip and then a huge tuft of hair came our on his neck.  All the spots are normal looking.  No pus, no inflammation, no itching but I'm worried.  

We just got here and are looking for a solid competent vet but thus far haven't had any luck.  It also looks like the cheapest first time visit I'm going to get here is near $100 which after moving isn't feasible for at least a few paychecks.

Some reading makes me think it's possibly hot spots.  He doesn't have a single flea and is on his monthly heart worm trifexis meds for intestinal junk.

Wondering if anyone has had this experience?

All the spots are pictured below

Hmm. My Baron had something like that around his face once, when he was about 4 months. I put a anti-allergy cream on it and I'm not sure if it helped or not really, but the spot went away within a couple weeks. I wonder if maybe it's some sort of allergy, and that's why it's shown up in multiple spots on your pup? It also seems it could be stress induced from the move. Is there any out of the ordinary behavior that's gone along with it?

Stark had developed a few bald patches on random spots on his body - turns out it was Demodex. Unfortunately, the only way to say if it really is or not is to go to a vet and do a skin scraping...

I know you guys are out in Seattle but there's a vet here on whidbey that only charges $54 for an initial visit. You could see him just til you find one you like up there.

Sorry I don't know about the spots, Karli is just starting her first blow.

He was super aggravated with being home alone after the move for about a week in the new place. About a month ago now. He would howl bloody murder until i came home which has since subsided. Looking at it today hair is definitely growing back and looking better everyday. But I guess even if it does all grow back I'm wondering what it could be
