Default Patches

Hi everyone & happy thanksgiving,

My Cousin just got a 10week chi and he's developing patches on front legs & face between his eyes. It looks like he has dry skin-anybody else has this problem? What can she put on it ? I was thinking oatmeal shampoo - what do you guys advice

thanks,

Mange is common in puppies because their immune systems aren't strong. It could be that and you'd need to see a vet to have it treated. A trip to the vet might be a good idea just to be safe

at that age its always best to have a vet check just to be sure, sounds like a parasite, but it could be an allergy, or it could be as simple as some dry skin/winter itch, but being so young id have a vet check just in case it is mange.

Sounds like Demodex to me.
Have the vet do a s****ing. Demodex is NOT contagious.

Don't know why that word is filtered it's s c r a p i n g

LOL it's the 2nd thru 5th letters it's filtering, but seems as tho it's a bit aggressive when it starts filtering groups of letters or words within a word.
