In the same time he has started to lose patches of hair which look very dry and itchy. I visited the vet and was informed to use a humidifier and was prescribed a a dry skin cream $500.00 later. I then visited another vet which prescibed allergie prescription which has not changed the situation. Now in the last 4 days his left nostril has started bleeding watery and as of today when he blows it out you can see stringy clots. I was informed this may be a tumor. Any help would be much appreciatted. In addition if anyone can reccomend a good vet in the Hamilton area which is more concerned about the animals they treat and not there income it would be of great assistance.

Thanks in Advance
Hi Becatsa,

I can't help with recommending a vet as I live in AB, or with experience in nose bleeds, but below are a couple of links to people who have had similar experiences.

I wish you the best of luck with your boy.
