Maya is 6 months old and was spayed last week, however, the vet noticed that she had some dry, flaky areas with some hair loss on her back and did a skin scraping. She said that Maya did not have demodetic mange or ringworm. The skin is darker, flaky, and the hair is patchy, but does not itch. From reading other posts, it seems to be boxer alopecia, but is she is too young to have this. The vet seems to think is allergies and presribed a medicated shampoo. I have to wait until her stitches are out to use the shampoo. In the meantime, I am switching her from Costco Kirkland Super Premium to Wellness to see if that helps her. Does the skin have to itch in order for it to be allergies? Or does she just have dry skin and needs fish oil and vitamin e oil supplements. Should I have the vet do another skin scraping when I get her stitches out.
