    DefaultDog losing hair on snout.

    My lab looks like he has some sort of fungus or something on his snout between his nose and eyes. It is like dry flaky skin in small circles, kind of similar to what humans get when they get that fungus on their skin when laying in tanning beds. I kind of scratched at it and it flaked off a bit. That portion of his nose looks really dry. Anybody know what it is, and what I can do? Benadryl?

    Vet is best bet both for accurate diagnosis and treatment plan

    if it is fungal in nature benadryl won't help and it will spread ...
    get on top of it fast before it becomes a problem

    let us know what it turns out to be
