Dog Skin Lesions
My dog began scratching ears raw 2 weeks ago, until bleeding ulcer started. Now, area scabs then reopens (dog in cone, so can't scratch), ear edges are rough and serrated in appearance, tiny bumps visible on inspection. Area starting on second ear.
Started bathing dog w/ sebhorrea shampoo( treating As possible dermatitis/ seborrhea/psoriasis) yesterday & noted flaking, scaly patches around her eyebrows today. Inner ears had small amount of dark brown, thin wax, but not "granulated" in appearance. Shakes her head a lot, but could b r/t cone.
Eats well, stool normal, behavior fine, no s/s of pain.
Litter type, food type unchanged. No new treats/ such. We DID move, & brought her outside before this occurred, & 1 yr ago, she had a "hot spot" created from a supposed grass allergy.
She is a 5 year old chihuahua, primarily indoors, uses litter box.
Don't really want to pay $200 for vet to tell me my dog can't play in grass!
