Q. My dog has one spot she keeps scratching and biting at right by her tail. Her hair is also thinning by one ear and around her eyes. What could help?

A. Because of your pets breed and also the signs you described of multiple bald spots on the body the #1 differential for this is Demodexx. Have your veterinarian perform a quick in-house skin scrap to check for mites and if the Demodexx mites are present, then there is a treatment that the vet will give you to give to your pet for this. But the first step is to confirm the suspicion.
