Bj, my male dog maltese, has nose ulcer

BJ is scratching and biting/knawing at spot on his back. He has no fleas so it isn’t that. His skin has dark brown spots in that area. What do you recommend I use to calm the itching & heal his skin?

Hello:

Itching and scratching appears often due some dermatological problem. Therefore, it is essential to perform a comprehensive diagnostic protocol, starting with simple and low-cost diagnostic tests that will allow to rule out the most common causes. Later on, it may be necessary to resort to more complex and specific tests to rule out allergies, autoimmune diseases, hormonal pathologies, etc.

All the best,
