My yellow lab is 13 months old. He's a wonderful friend and has been on the RAW model diet for the last 3 months. I switched him to RAW and he constantly itches his skin and has gunky ears so I thought it would help if he were allergic to wheat, grain etc. He has loved being on RAW but I haven't noticed any improvement at all in his skin condition.
The last 3 weeks or so there have been these bumps on his skin. When I scratch at them a clump of dirt looking stuff comes loose with a clump of his hair as well. I notice his skin is raw beneath. These are on his cheeks, top of his head, behind his neck, on his back etc. They are not everywhere, just in clusters in certain spots. It does not look like flea dirt to me, he is up to date with his tick and flea treatment and has been thoroughly checked so I'm sure it's not this.
Has anyone seen this before? I will take him to the vet but just wanted to ask here to see first.
Here are some photos I took just tonight.
Clumps of his hair with attached dried blood and dirt?
Hair thinning on face
Thanks for your help
