Guys, thank you for your suggestions.

No excessive hair loss (skin showing) in any other part except the 25-paise coin-sized patch on his left-hind leg, below the thigh. This spot is reducing in size with new hair growth, but very slowly. The exposed part of the skin is dry, but not flaky. No pinkishness or blackish spots on the hair-loss spot or anywhere in his body.

However, the hair seems thin (no patches) on his forehead when viewed from the back (eg. when walking him) Also, behind the front leg where the leg meets the body trunk. I'm assuming this is because of his color (jet black) contrasting with his white skin. A similar symptom in a yellow lab will be less evident due to lesser contrast.

Enjoy your pet and take lots of photos, this is the best time
No red spots. We do bathe him at least once in three days with a anti-fungal, anti-bacterial shampoo provided by the vet. This has helped in containing the infection and the typical "doggy" smell.

Try and use gentle shampoo like Himalaya ERINA EP - that usually helps dogs with mites and other skin troubles. It is a completely natural product so safe for the dog. But you must check for some kind of mange to rule it out if nothing else.
Thanks, Shankar. So far, the patch seems to be reducing in size and no other patches have been seen. Apart from my vet, will take a second opinion from another vet.

Hi all.

My friend has a tabby cat and her 4 kittens. Unfortunately, she is leaving Bangalore for good and the airlines folks are not allowing her to carry her pets.

Hence, she has decided to give them away.
Please note: All the family should be together.

Anyone interested, please drop me a PM.

I dont think she is trying hard enough with the Airline. All Airlines allow pets - if they are properly secured. They are loaded in the cargo bay within a cage. If pets are to be flown internationally, they will be quarantined at the port of entrance for a few days for a couple of tests prior to release.

Highly stressful for the pets, but its definitely a possibility. I would suggest sedating them just this time prior to loading on the flight - letting them sleep all the way through to their destination.

(3) Hair loss Duke has lost a patch of hair (size of a 25 paise coin) on his left-rear leg, just below the thigh. When we took him to the vet, the diagnosis was insufficient hygiene which caused a fungal infection. The cure was a anti-fungal lotion and bathing him every 2-3 days. Also, his hair is thinning around the forehead area and in the underbelly area. He has no ticks or worms. How do I ensure regrowth of hair in the patch and prevent more hair loss?


Hi DueLLeR,

1. Initially, it was once a week. After the hair-loss, the vet recommended bathing him every two to three days.

2. I don't remember the name right away, but it is a "anti-fungal" "anti-bacterial" shampoo meant for dogs, provided by the vet. I can PM you the names when I get home.

3. We wrap him in a large Turkish towel to absorb the water, but never rub the towel like the way we dry ourselves. Thereafter, we take him for a walk or car ride to complete the drying process.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers!
DueLLeR

Hi DueLLeR,

The dog will start shedding when it is loosing its Excess Oils in the skin, and some infections will raise after the oils are lost.

so please follow the steps, so that you can avoid shedding.

1. Orally provide Sunflower oil or Olive oil (5 ML to 10 ML) daily.
2. don't give the bath every 2 days, at least once in 1 month or once in two months. to avoid the smell(please mix Glycerin(5 spoons) and Baking Soda(3 spoons) in some 5 liters of water) and once the bath is finished please wet the pet with the Water mixed with glycerin and Baking soda.
3. this will avoid the skin disease and smells and infections if any(please follow the steps which you are currently using to dry the pet)
4. you can use a drug (RIDD(Approx. 10 ml- 100 Rupees- available at all vets)) which is a small bottle of liquid mix it with some 10 liters of water and give a final bath. this also will take care of step 3.

dont use any detergent based shampoo or soap, use always OAT shampoo, it should be mild.

if we use the shampoo which we use that also spoils the skin condition of pet, since that shampoos which we use are supposed to remove the oils, but the pet should have oil in its skin.

hope this helps.

if your pet plays in mud and gets dirty, have a cloth dipped in warm water and then wipe it off, dont give the bath, since the step 2 will take care of the pet some times giving the stinking smell in this winter.

@Speedracer i think bathing the dog once in 3 days is too much. Once a month or max to max twice a month is more than enough. Dogs have natural oils in the skin/hair, too much of bathing will make them loose these oils and lead to hairfall and dandruff over the period of time. Rashes and dry skin is a side-effect too.
