Yvesj welcome to df! We aren't vets we just love our dogs. The vet is really the best person to help you.

If your vet hasn't recommended/prescribed a prescription shampoo for your dog, I'd probably go with a natural dog shampoo that is oatmeal based and try not to bath him too much until he is on the mend. You can also add fish oil to his diet.

Hi yves! Sorry to hear about your sheltie. This is quite basic but you might also check for fleas. Some dogs have a reaction to fleas which causes hair loss as well as pimple-type lumps. The other suggestions are also good. Good luck!

Hi yvesj Welcome aboard to Df Sorry to hear this about your sheltie! First though please, please stop using human shampoo a dog is not a human being
and often a human shampoo will have a different ph level to a dog shampoo!

Also the problem could lie with human foods full of E numbers and other processed stuff and high levels of salt/sugar A odd treat of human food won't do any harm but permanantly feeding human food is not good
Prehaps Vagreys our resident food expert could advise you! Good luck with the hair loss and hope you get some answers/treatment soon Good luck and let us know how you get on!

I think the idea of having a groomer bathe your dog is a very good one. A good groomer will know the difference between normal dirt accumulation and something that needs medical attention.
