Schnauzers can be prone to skin problems as many of you may know. Some of the common hair and skin issues are easily identifiable, like Schnauzer Comedone Syndrome, Seborrhea, or thyroid and gland problems, while others can remain a mystery.
Teddie, a Miniature Schnauzer who is 4 1/2 years old, has a lovely well mannered affectionate personality, but recently has developed two areas on her back where the soft haired coat has deteriorated revealing a coarse hair close to the skin.
The Vet has looked at it and is unsure what the cause may be and has had a culture done which came back negative. The Vet has said not to worry about the bald spot. Not knowing what is causing this hair loss/change is, by its nature, still a concern.
If you have any experience or tips on how to treat a bald spot or if you recognize the condition from the picture please tell us about it in the comment section below.
