Frenchy with skin promblems

I have a Frenchy (Nano) he has something like a scab (i send you a pic), we have no idea what is. We have treated like a fungus but it has not disappeared. We have done a biopsy and expect results. Have you seen something like this?

Thanks in advance!!!

Hello there,

Ouch- poor Nano! It is always hard to tell what has caused a scab just by looking at it. Your veterinarian would have probably asked you numerous questions that would help them try and piece together what may have happened/caused it in the first place.

Skin lesions can occur due to many different things and a biopsy is a good step to help reveal what is causing this scab in Nano. In the meantime, keep a close eye on him to make sure he doesn’t traumatise the area and make it worse, as he could then end up with a secondary infection and require medication.

I’m sure the results will be back soon and then the appropriate treatment (if required) can be started.
