Skin Irritations -- sporatic scabbing, flaking, etc.
I am writing on behalf of Meader our beautiful 3.5 year old Havanese who has been suffering the last six months with what appears to be some sort of skin issue. We have been able to treat it with antibiotics three times but I hesitate to continue to use drugs as a solution. We have tried diet changes, etc. but still no long term results. He is does not have fleas -- is well groomed and bathed -- and generally happy. Itching can also be an issue and at times more pronounced than others -- I have added vitamin e to his dies along with a probiotic. The scabs can be very small to larger circular spots -- sometimes hair loss is accompanied around the site. He tends to get them mostly on the bottom of his body -- under the front legs, hind quarters, and around his belly.
