Vet help?
So, my Doggue De Bordeaux Marla seems to have contracted something recently and figured I'd see if anyone here may know what it is. I just noticed it within the last week and can't really tell if it's getting worse or not. She's got little circles on her side(in somewhat of a cluster). The little circle patches have lost their fur and appear slightly irritated. She occasionally will itch at them, but not obnoxiously nor too often.

Is it mange? Simple allergy issue? Ringworm(god I hope not)? TIA for any help

And I forgot to mention that I picked up an anti-fungal anti-bacterial spray yesterday that I began using on the area.

Might be sun blisters

She's an indoor dog, so sun blisters aren't it. And the idea of mange is really creeping me out. Less so than ringworm, but am I going to die?

Google "Dog Hot Spots" at least that's what the wife calls them on our dog. She just spays some kinda stuff on them and they go away.

Don't know the medical/vet term for them so you may get some fire hydrant, dog parks, or other places dogs hang out with your google results

re: Vet help?
If it is mange it's starting in an uncommon spot from everything I'm reading. Here's to hoping that means it isn't mange.

Take her to a Vet ! Ringworm is easy to take care of.

re: Vet help?
I plan on taking her to the vet, but I currently live in a small town and all the vets are closed. Then tomorrow I work a long shift and won't be able to take her. Thursday I will be, but wanted some info/opinions to stir up my anxiety until then.

re: Vet help?
That's mange for sure. I'm dealing with it on my pup right now. Apparently there's 2 kinds. Mine has the heridetary mange. It can get out of hand pretty quick. He has a 8"x3" area in the same spot of no hair. Just dry skin.

re: Vet help?
Yeah, at first I read about the common, non-transferable mange and was like "whew, NBD, I can handle this"

Then I read about the other kind and panicked.
