My dog is getting bald spots.

My dog Ava has been getting bald spots around her head, neck, a little on her back close to her head, and one on her paw. It is not oozing out any liquids but it is really pink/red where the hair has fallen out. The skin looks a little scaly at times. I don't know if it spreds or new spots just start. Ava is a little over 6 months, she's a full breed American Pitbull Terrier. I am getting an appointment with the vet tomorrow but they usually take a day or two to get you in, so for now I want to see if anyone has advice. Please help! Thank you.

My parents french bulldog has the same problem where he gets bald patches from hair falling out. To be honest with you, I do not know the diagnosis, but I do know that it is nothing serious. They just point a special ointment on the dry area and the hair quickly grows back. Do not worry, I'm sure that your dog has the same thing and that it too is not serious. Let me know what the vet says. Good luck.

Thanks. I hope so! I'll keep you posted.

Legalize It!

My six month old puppy was allergic to the Albon that the shelter gives all its exiting puppies.  We got him last month, and after 10 days had to take him to Tufts because he could no longer walk.  Tufts put him on 40 days of antibiotics.  Since visiting Tufts, he's developed approx 10 large bald spots, all over his body.  Nothing unusual, just no hair.  He has no fleas.  I was just wondering what your vet said.  I thought it might be a reaction to the antibiotics, but Tufts doesn't think so.  I can't afford another vet bill until the insurance covers the past ones!
