So my Akita keeps coming up with ‘hot spots’. I’ve taken him to the vets about 3/4 time with this same problem and the vet has told me it’s not an easy diagnosis as he could be getting them for a number of reasons. She prescribed him isaderm which does seem to help if applied over a period of time, however just as I think he’s got cleared of them they come back! He’s had a patch on his forehead and numerous other patches on his body. The patched have this yellow type of crust on them at the root of the hair and as result his hair falls off in that patch, has anyone else experienced this and if so how have you dealt with it? He’s up to date with his advocate/worming tablets so I was convinced it wasn’t any parasites. Please help!
