Thread: What is this on my dog's face?

  1. #1

    Default What is this on my dog's face?

    If anyone has any idea or advice for this on my dogs face. She is 11 months old and I just got her back from the trainer. He isn't sure what it is but she scabbing in that area like a big cut almost. She isn't scratching at it at all. The hair is hard when it is dry.

    Could be a hot spot. Usually the hair will shed off of the site. IMO I would have a vet look at it.

    Doesn't look good. Is there swelling? Is it hot? I second the vet visit. Especially if it is swollen and/or hot.

    Looks like a crusted over hot spot. If it is, you need to shave it so it can dry out and use something like Vetricin to help it heal.

    It could be a number of things.
    Get off the internet and go see your Vet.
