    DefaultSkin condition on my 8 month old lab

    Hi, my 8 month old female black labrador starting having this skin condition 2-3 weeks back and I think it is getting more serious. Before I bring her to the vet which is not that easy in a remote place that I'm living in, I just want to see if there's anyone here that can identify or help.

    A little description, it is dry, a bit flaky and the flaky skin feels hard on the touch. I think it is itchy because I saw one of the spots is bleeding slightly very likely due to her scratching. Currently it appears in small spots below her mouth, and the larger spot (about half a thumb size) is somewhere between her neck and her front leg, and fur on those spots are felling off.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    might need a skin scraping to rule out mange.

    I understand wanting input from others but for medical advice it's really best to have a vet look at it. It'S impossible to really diagnose anything online based on a photo. You can maybe call the vet and ask for tips or what to look for before bringing her in but you will ultimately have to bring her in sooner rather than later.
