Bertie's Face

Post by katherine on Wed Jan 11, 2012 10:03 am

Bertie has a bald patch on his cheek - or rather he has a bald cheek. I wonder if this is purely barbering - he does barber Maddi a bit so it might just be her reciprocating, or might it be something else as well, it is completely bald rather than shorter hairs and does look quite sore. I'll try and post a photo tomorrow.

I'm no expert but two things I thought of:

Is he rubbing his chin against something? It looks similar to alopecia when a dog has had a rope or chain around the neck. No fur but no irritation.

Any possibility it could be mites of some kind?

I know both of the above are extremely unlikely - especially the idea that you've been chaining him up, ROFL! Big Grin

Given the location and the fact you said it's a completely bald patch I'd say barbering as well.

Haha I should chain him up Laugh I can't see him rubbing his face on anything, but I will keep an eye on him for signs of mites Smile Thanks Lew, hopefully that's all it is because I have no idea how I'd begin to treat him for anything.
