Pug with bald black spots

August 3rd, 2006, 01:59 PM
I have a Pug that is 16 months old. Last year around Aug. my pug was taken to the groomer for a bath. After picking him up it look like he had a small bald spot. The bald spot has since never grown hair and has tuimsrned the skin black. He has since scratched himself on the neck and has another black bald spot. I have been putting Advantix on him since I got him and never had a problem with him scratching himself except when I took him to someones house that had fleas bad and thats when he scratched himself on the neck. Is this a common thing or what? When I took him to the vet they told me that it would go away. This was last year. Please advise. By the way I have a fawn pug so the skin is white.

You better get your pup to the vet and have it looked at as it could be a form of skin cancer, if so the sooner it is diagnosed the better as the odds are extremely good of beating it if caught early
