Ever since my Coton was neutered and microchipped in April he has continually gotten scabs on him.They just appear all of a sudden, mainly behind his ear, neck, nose and shoulder. The vet has prescribed antibiotics (he has been on them almost consistently since May (he is now 13 mths). He will be off them briefly and they return.
I only feed him LTD duck/sweet potato Merrick dog food, Nordic naturals omega 3 and bully sticks trying to get it under control. I asked the breeder if she has ever heard of this (it is not mange or mites, vet has scraped and looked under microscope and neither of them know what it is) and she said she had not. I really don't want to puppy cut his hair to help control it, unless I absolutely need to.
Each time I go to the vet it costs $150, and if I have to go twice a month it gets quite expensive. Have you ever heard of any other Cotons with this issue?
