Hi everyone, our dog Ollie is a 4 year old golden retriever. We suddenly found a lot of scabs covering 1/3 of his back, the hind part. It's crusty and if you try to peel it off it has a red, raw looking spot underneath. He has fleas 6 months ago and has been treated with drops each month. The flea went away for a while but recently came back. We have never seen this amount of scabs on him before and very worried :( He is also losing a lot of hair recently, maybe due to summer weather changes. Any suggestion on what might cause this? Here's a photo of one of the scab. Thank you!!


(It doesn't look like a lot in this pic but that's only because he has a very thick long hair so unless we shave him bald we can't see the scabs properly, but you can easily feel the bumps when you stroke him)

Could be a flea allergy. What drops do you use? That looks like flea dirt around the bloody spot. The spot flea treatment needs to be a good brand like frontline plus and must be applied every 30 days to be effective.
