Bald patch on side of neck.
by Linda Prior
(Suffolk UK )
Our ten month coton has suddenly developed a complete bald patch on the side of her neck about the size of a small jam jar lid.
She appears in good health, energetic, sleeping OK, no problems with diet , appetite etc and certainly has not been scratching or worrying at the area before or now.
The skin appears completely normal looking. No redness, scales, dry etc. All there seems to be is a small bump under the skin , where I think she had her ranies injection at twelve weeks and a much smaller pimple size bump which could be her microchip?
She was spayed a couple of months ago with no problems , but I think she had some further procedural injections given in that site . Could her bald spot be some sort of reaction to this?
There was certainly no reactive evidence at the time.
I also recall her rubbing her neck along into something ( usually dead or vile) or other while out walking , just days before I discovered the bald patch.
I am currently treating the area with an anti fungal cream and shampoo just in case it is fungal , but has anyone else had this experience?
Ironically my husband is a Vet, but like all husbands who do something, he rarely takes much notice of his own when something is up! He just days to treat it as we are as there are no other symptoms etc. Of course I would rather hear what others may suggest!
