    My Boston Terrier is loosing hair and constantly scratching sores...

    Hi,

    I am new to the forum, and I came on here to find out what could be wrong with my dog. She has black sores near her rear end, and there is a lot of hair loss in that area. If an experienced member could give me some advice by looking at the picture, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks a lot,
    Aaron

    Well, I looked at the pictures, but darn it, I'm not a vet. So my advice is to go to the vet. It could be any number of things with any number of treatments.

    No one can diagnose your dog over the internet, nor should they. Beg or borrow to get the money, but that poor dog NEEDS to see a vet, she must be miserable.

    If you had a black, itchy rash all over your body, wouldn't you find a way to see a doctor and get some medication for it??

    Go to the vet and ask them to do a skin scrape. it should be relatively expensive. i know what that looks like but in order to treat what that looks like...you need a prescription from a VET. and it needs to be diagnosed first.

    Aaron, you must take your dog to a vet no one on here or any place else on the Internet can diagnose or treat your BT. She is not going to get better, only worse and you are very close to animal abuse. PLEASE see a vet ASAP, if you cannot afford one go to your local humane society and they will help you.
