Baxter has been losing a bit of hair in the front of his neck which I assumed was from his collar since he pulls on walks, so I've been talking his collar off and only putting it on right before going outside. It is a leather collar if that matters, and he has always used collars for walks...Today I took his collar off and there is some redness around his neck..it isn't moist and it doesn't appear to itch him at all. I have also noticed that his hair on his stomach and hind legs seems to be thinning lately, could be unrelated but IDK..anyone have any ideas of what this is ? There have been no changes in diet so I don't think its allergies. Here is a pic of the neck rash

It could be so many things, from heat rash to infection to scabies. I would get it
checked out at the vet's, maybe get some antibiotic to treat it, and switch to
wearing a harness.

I would look into purchasing the Epi Pet shampoo in addition to the medical attention. It will help the area to heal and the hair to grow back. Hope it turns out to be nothing serious. :)
