What other foods has he been given in the past?
He is currently eating IVD Duck & Pea wet food. Hills Z/D dry food. Prior to this he ate ProPlan chicken/rice and salmon/rice wet food. PropPlan Chicken/rice and Barley dry food. Other than growing grass from the pet store that he ate, or if he occassional found a tiny piece of people food that might have fallen on the floor, that was what he ate before.
He has 3 spots a big spot on the side of neck a small spot under his chin and a small spot on the backside of neck. No new spots developed the problem since we have been trying to clear this up.
It just seems the occassional scratching is going to make it a tough heal. He might go 2-3 days not scratch or rub then he does it.
Anyway, thanks for you help
