Fur falling out with flakes (photo)
We have a 13-year-old male GSD (~115 lbs.) whose health has been on the decline (canine degenerative myelopathy, diarrhea, and heart problems). We pulled out a clump of fur that was sticking out and to our surprise, he was left with a bald spot. There was also this flakiness stuck to the fur. Here's a photo:
We pulled at more fur and the same thing happened. Any idea what's going on and what we can do to help him? We want to take him to his vet but in his current condition, it is becoming extremely difficult.
