Why did my dogs skins turn scaly and black?

asked 2022-12-01 21:41:00 -0600


My dogs skin has progressively turned black the past year. She’s always had bad allergies but the skin problems usually go away after I take her to the vet. I’m positive it isn’t Cushing disease thankfully. Anyone have a similar issue? Any remedy? See attached photo.

Thank you

Hello. Have the vets test for everything. Cushings, thyroid, yeast. Also certain breeds are known to have similar issue for different reasons. My Pomeranian has a thyroid issue which took years to diagnose. She has hair loss, during the summer her skin will turn black. So I have to protect her skin
