UC Davis Veterinary Dermatologists Help Dog with Persistent Skin Disease

May 02, 2017

Jackson, a 12-year-old male border collie, developed a crusting lesion under his eye and started losing hair in the area. The scaling condition spread down his muzzle so his owners took him to their veterinarian. A skin scraping showed a possible mite infestation, and both a pet anti-parasite medication and antibiotics were administered to Jackson. After that treatment did not clear up his condition, Jackson’s owners took him to another veterinarian; however despite that veterinarian’s best efforts, Jackson was still suffering from his skin condition.
