i just adopted a 7 month old male peke from a rescue league and he seems to have bald spots all over him. not only does he have thes bald spots but he seems to chew on certain spots until they are raw. i put chlorihexiderm on the spots and they seem to calm down for a little while, but he scratches and chews at himself. he doesn't seem to have fleas and i wanted to know if he might need some kind of special bath for his skin. i'm guessing that he's allergic somehow, but i'm not sure what kind of shampoo to buy for him. it almost seems as though he has hot-spots under his fur. it has to be driving him crazy, so any help ypu can give me would be great.
Try an oatmeal based shampoo. I recommed a visit to the vet b/c your pets may need medication. Good luck, vetcare
