I have a small rat terrier, Maximus, with a short coat of fur. He will be a year old on 11/16/01 and weighs 10 pounds. He is losing a lot of fur and has a lot of small bumps all over his body, especially on his back. He is currently on advantage and on allergroom shampoo once a month. He does not socialize with other dogs and is an indoor dog. What could be the cause of the loss of fur and the bumps?
Your pet may have an allergy and a skin infection. I usually treat this with Keflex and prednisone ( I only use the pred if your pet is itching ) Talk to your vet about allergy testing if there is no improvement. Good luck, vetcare
