Default My puppy developing bald spot!

I just noticed it few days ago but I didn't think twice about it. But I don't want it getting worse! She isn't scratching it. It just seems to have appeared from nowhere! Should I purchase Goodwinol ointment?

I'd see a vet so that they can take a scraping and put it under the microscope. It looks like there is a red spot underneath the bald spot?

Not red at all. Just looks dry.

Strange place for a bald spot. Is she crated much? Wondering if she's rubbing her head/pushing against the crate bars.

What kind of food are you feeding?

Shes not crated at all. She shares half my room lol, but she still sleeps in her crate at night at her own will because the crate is always open.

I feed her this, Castor & Pollux Organix Puppy Formula Organic Dry Food

Just a quick update, we had her skin scraped and she was positive for demodex. I am spot treating her with Goodwinol.

What an odd spot for it to develop. Not an uncommon diagnosis though, she'll be right as rain in no time I'm sure

Just a update, with the application of Goodwinol daily for the last 4 days, her hair is regrowing on her bald spot rather quickly!!
