Hi! My Finnegan has developed a bunch of little scabs on the skin around his ears and neck in the last few days. He doesn't scratch them, and I can pick them off without him bleeding or complaining. Does anyone know what causes these or how to get rid of them? Finney is 6 years old and has never had skin issues before this. Thanks.

I have no idea. He didn't get into anything that would scratch him up like burrs did he? Welcome and hope someone can help.

I don't know either. Maybe dermititis. Or he could have scratched himself because of itching and developed the scabs from after scratching.

Archie had scabs all over his back. He doesn't have them anymore, but when I bathe him, I see little light brown things like scabs coming off his back. When I scratch his back, he seem VERY itchy. The vet told me it was allergies and it was enviornmental. He told me to give him 1/2 of a benedryl. (I haven't bought them yet :blush:) I will this weekend though.
