  • Scabs and flaky backs on client dogs

    Fellow groomers -

    I've been seeing a lot of dogs with flaky and scaby skin along the lower back area. It's not breed specific. The scabs are in clusters, and don't appear to be from biting or scratching becasue of their location (they are hard to get at). There are so many possible skin conditions, but the fact that I am seeing it on so many dogs is concerning. I live in Florida. Not knowing what the condition is, I've been using oatmeal-based shampoos so that I don't irritate whatever it is.

    Anyone else seeing the same thing? Any suggestions on shampoos or skin treatments?
