Blue is losing chunks of hair on his side and legs.... It doesn't look like he has mange, and nothing in his routine has changed so I don't think it could be from stress. Is it normal for boxers to lose chunks of hair??
Definitely go to vet & get a scrape.
When Bellas demodex returned, It was just a small patch of hairloss, no other skin conditions. Vet was surprised I even noticed. If I'm not mistaken, demodetic mange usually begins of facial area & feet first.
They aren't very big, someone who isn't around Blue everyday wouldn't notice them! I noticed them about a week ago and have kept and eye on them. The patches that were there haven't grown in size, but he is getting new patches.
How do they get demodex? What would cause him to get it? I feel like Blue has been to the vet more than any other dog. He's in about once a month, I feel so bad for him! He doesn't act like anything is bothering him, he never scratches the spots. It's just strange, I would think if he had bugs on him, it would itch!
Glad he's going to the vet. The quicker you notice & treat demodex the better. You may also want to google, red mange & puppyhood mange, both are other common names.
If it is demodex, the mitiban dips suck!!! I'll never go thru that again.
