Just noticed my CLM has a spot near his spine that has been giving him some trouble for about 2 days. When I brushed the fur back I noticed a good sized spot that is red and weaping. The dermatitis seems to be uncomfortable and itchy but is not causing the hair to fall out. We will see the vet but I wanted to know if anyone has seen this before. I switched to TriForce flea and tick repellant that I applied on Sunday and have a sneaking suspicion that I am seeing a reaction to the medication. Also, we have just been able to get into the water in the last couple days but I dry him thoroughly and he hasnt had a problem before. The spot is localized to the top of his mid back as I have not found any other spots of irritation. Please reference the photo and let me know what I may be dealing with as I have not seen this before.
