schnauzer getting light brown patches on back

by marianne

My silver grey schnauzer is getting strange brownish patches of colored hair on the sides of his back. It feels rough, shorter then the rest of his hair. He is 7 years old and seems healthy. this started about a month ago and now is really noticible, both sides, about the size of an apple in diameter.

My 1 year old schnauzer also has this

COMMENT FROM LINDA AND MAX: It is probably the 'pepper' colour in the salt and pepper coat (Schnauzers are not grey, they are salt and pepper) :)

Attaching a photo
by: Michele

If you have photos of your Schnauzer in your photos folder, then go to the Your Stories page on here and when you have written something then where it says Choose File. You click on that, then upload the photo, more or less the same as you would do when sending an email and attaching photos. If you want me to do it for you just tell me, with your email and I will do it for you, so here's my email.. michele.lawrence@ymail.com you can send me the photo and I will, with your permission, add it to this site..

My salt and pepper miniature schnauzer is also getting strange brownish patches of colored hair on the side. It feels rough, shorter then the rest of his hair. He is 2 years old and is healthy. this started about two weeks ago and now the small patch look as if it's spreading a little and it's really noticeable. It was about one inch in diameter. How do I attach a picture to my note? Many thanks!

If you post a photo of him, then we can see what you mean and maybe have an answer.. this may be ok but without seeing a photo it is difficult to give you an answer..
