what should i do to make hair grow back on my red nose pitbulls bald spots?
by i love my dog
i have a 7 month red nose pit bull and my parents dogs bite him and now he has a lot of bold spots all over his body. i want to know what can i use to make his hair grow back on his bald spots?
what's a way or a medication that i can use and buy at a local store so his hair can grow back?
There are several reasons that a dog can lose hair in places - parasitic conditions such as Mange, dog allergies, or even scar tissue from being bitten/injured - which may be the case here.
However, if these bald spots are big, spreading, or your dog seems to be itchy or there's a rash, you need a vet to rule out mites etc.
Unfortunately unless you know exactly what is causing the problem you can't treat it, so a vet visit is a must first. Over the counter products aren't available to treat mange, and if it's an allergy you need to find the trigger in order to eliminate the skin symptoms. If these bald spots are purely due to bites, then obviously you need to protect your pup from being bitten any more, and just let nature heal the scars and hope that the hair grows back some.
Best of luck.
