My 11 month old neutered male gsp has recently started to develop extra dark specs on his coat, which are much darker than his coat thus far.
I am in Melbourne Australia and we are now going into the hot summer season so i thought it may be a summer coat and /or he's just getting darker gradually and this is how it happens?
Hes a pretty rough player down at the beach with other dogs and theres always plenty of friendly bites so ive also thought perhaps its as a result of the little bites and nips etc ?
The worst ive thought is that it could be mange, or the start of mange, but his coat and skin are in top condition overall.
He has had some inflammation on his belly and around the underams and groin areas but they cleared up with some basic treatment, and that was over a month ago.
Any pointers or ideas or information about natural gsp coat development or anything would be alot of help
I took pictures of Bo for this post but dont seem to be able to attach any
It is more than likely his coat darkening as he grows up. He is about the tight age to really star noticing the change, and depending on his coat marking and color it can be more noticeable.
If you go back to the general discussion list the second post will tell you how to post pictures.
