Help! my dog is a huge german sheperd and his in terrible conditions. About a month ago, i started to notice that his skin was peeling and was very dry. Soon after he started to have red spots and when he scratches he hurts himself causing severe scratches with blood that hurt him alot when I touch it. All the spots have lost hair, and hes starting to smell bad. I also notice that by his hips he haves two bumps, that freak me out. I know I should take him to the vet, the problem is that his to visious and hard to handle and my bugdet is bad at this moment. It breaks my heart to see him like that, could you please give me an opinion of what you might think it might be. I hope i hear from you soon.
First of all, you have to bring your pet the vet for a check-up. Ask your vet for a mild traquilizer prior to the visit or put a muzzel on him. This could be a skin allergy, autoimmune disorder such as lupus or pemphigus, fungal infection, parasite infestation, etc. This could be many things, a vet should examine your pet for an accurate diagnosis and treatment.
