Missing Patches Of Fur

Recommended Posts

About two weeks ago, it looked like Bernie had a cut on the back of his neck. I just figured someone else clipped him, it wasn't anything major. I cleaned and kept it clean for him. Now, it's healed up, but the fur is gone and there's a black circle (kind of like a zit). And there's another small spot on his neck missing some fur.


Any clue why he could be missing some fur back there? I'm worried and paranoid.


Thanks in advance.

If he is getting more areas of zits and fur loss I would take him to the vet...could be a staph infection of the skin. Staph infections can often start from a simple cut or wound. A round or two of antibiotics can often take care of the problem. If the zits don't clear up soon I would take him to the vet anyway, especially if fur loss if involved.
