Hello everyone Leos skin has been acting up not a lot just it seems his hair is easy to pull out on his back mainly close to his neck there are no spots or bumps I dont know if it is because summer is coming and it is getting hot.... but what I have read and what people have told me is they think it is dry skin any input would be great thanks

Have you recently applied any flea protection in that spot on his neck?

Can you get your Vet to look at it? If it was my dog, I would feel more comfortable getting the exact diagnosis then deciding on a treatment, if one was necessary. :|

He's about a year old, right? He could be blowing out his puppy coat and growing his adult coat in. Plus, the change of seasons usually will trigger a big shedding.

Do you see any dandruff or is he scratching a lot?

nope no scratching at all and yes he is a year in one month...wow I have had this little guy for a while now and I also left out that he went in the pool about a week ago and today he seems to love the water now since it is getting hot if that helps anything....if it gets bad I will take him to the vet but for now it just seems like he is doing a little bit of shedding since it is getting hot but I will pay attention to it
