One pup in a litter of 5 has a light tan colored hard scab below her coat in the lower back region.. It grew in size from a round area about the size of a half dollar to an egg shaped patch twice that size. Her coat is not affected. It is not bothering her. She is gaining weight like the other pups. I have seen cradle cap in humans and in a 9 week old bulldog pup. None of the other pups have symptoms. It is starting to respond to treatment of oil to soften the scab and decrease in size. I wonder if other GR owners have seen this and would be willing to share what they know.
Do pups with Cradle Cap have a higher likelihood of skin or immune system problems as adults?
