    Somchai has some skin problems requiring us to shave bits of hair off and clean it up 'cos he's scrathed it too much or something. looks like a carpet burn a little.

    a few of the other dogs around the moo bahn seem to have been shaved in random places too, and the vet said she'd had a lot with the same thing.

    has you dog got/had this? did you do anything to make it stop?

    the poor bastards just got over 2 on his back and now there's one on his neck. looks gross.

    sounds like mange or a fungal skin infection.

    I see the locals "painting" some colourful chemical on their dogs if they start looking mangy with their fur (purple if I remember correctly) and they seem to recover pretty fast. I'm surprised the vet you talked to didn't advise something anti-fungal or disinfectant (or at least to ease the itchiness) - it can't be expensive.

    the vet shaved the bad parts and put cream on. healed really quickly, just new bits have appeared.

    I'd ask for some of that cream to be able to treat it yourself before it gets too bad (or something similar if the vet is reluctant to give you something too strong). I doubt you can completely prevent it recurring, but treating it quickly should stop it from spreading as much. If it's fungal your dog could still have fungal spores elsewhere on the body which hadn't turned into a full outbreak or is picking it up from somewhere else like a dog bed/blanket.... or simply from other dogs.

    Just a little extra for you, eating too much fatty food will do the same thing. If it is fungal, just get a good quality medicated shampoo and give him a tub every couple of days.

    he can't lick his balls. If I had that ability and then it was taken away I'd be down right pissed!
