Crusty stuff on Beamers neck area

Ok, So today I noticed a few spots on beamers neck where he has some hard crusty spors. When I take a closer looks it seems to be under the hair on the skin and is all hard and crusty like... perhaps scabs? What else could this be? Should I take him to the vet to see what they say?

Thanks..
Ryan

Could it be an allergic reaction or some thing where his collar has rubbed? I'd probably make a vet visit only for the fact that you don't want them to get infected if he scratches. Hopefully it's just skin build up and they'll recommend you use a tar-based shampoo (t-Gel human formula works well too).

Let us know how he's doing.

Well, it could be a lot of things - usually seen on dogs with more folds - the shedding skin gets caught up in the folds and then nasty things start to grow. But it's important not to self-diagnose and have the vet check on the off chance they might be benign growths. I haven't heard these to be a problem in Havanese, but hey, they are dogs so I'm sure they get skin issues just like other breeds on occasion.

Ryan,
I agree with Lisa. Also, does it have an odor? What color is it? Does he scratch it a lot? Have there been any changes to food, detergents used, shampoo's used, pesticides, any cleaning products, etc? Is there hair loss?

"He just got groomed yesterday and is looking very handsome!"
Do you think it could be a reaction to the soap the groomer used?
Also if it was there before the grooming shouldn't she have mentioned to you?
PS-I agree with Kathy and Lisa

Sally,((Oliver)) Comet and Pennie too!

Are they small spots? Something similar happened to Stogie and Melissa finally found out he had gotten some flea bites from a new grooming place she had taken him to. (it's been awhile ago, I think that is how things went)

Hi Kathy,

Does not seem to have an odur. We just took a closer look at it and wet it. Looks like a scab of some sort. No changes to food..detergents?? Yesterday the groomer used whatever shampoo they use.. no idea what it was...
Does not seem to be any hair loss in the area...

Hmmm.. think i will take him to the vet tomorrow and see what they think..

I would take him to be checked too. How big are these spots? It makes me wonder if they had a noose on him while he was being groomed and he was fighting to get out of it and it rubbed his neck too much and caused something similar to we would call rug burn on him.
