so, if you can see him in 2013, uploaded in the photos section, you can see how very much my handsome boy has changed. He is almost over a bacterial skin infection on his head but most of the hair loss on his head is I think because he sticks his head between the fence posts and even bites on the wood in an effort to meet the deer and turkeys that pass by. Here's a pic from last summer.
Buddy2 just kept losing hair on his head and down to his shoulders so the vet finally recommended a doggie dermatologist, who knew? She took one look and suspected Sebaceous Adenitis, took a couple of biopsies and sure enough, that's what it is. It does make dogs more susceptible to infections so that's why we've had the ebb and flow, get a bit better, then worse, then better. Doc assures me it is only cosmetic. One of those things Akitas, poodles, Chows & some other dogs are susceptible to. We are treating with Dermoscent Essential 6 pipettes that go on like Frontline, once a week for 2 months then try every other week & see. Six weeks in, I see much improvement. Will have to continue for the rest of his life, don't know how often yet. Thankfully, I found them online for half the price the doggie dermatologist charged for the first box. I am just happy to finally know what we're dealing with!!
