I first noticed these sores two weeks ago. Since then it seems a new one pops up every 2 days or so, mostly on his back/on his spine but now I have found two or three on his side. They do not cause discomfort to him when I touch them (to clean). When I pet him I notice a scab (ranging from the size of a small pea to the size of a pebble) and it is easy to break apart, also the hair is easy to come out when I pull the scabs off. I put neosporin on them at first, now I am leaving them alone in hopes they clear up on their own. I thought maybe fleas, but I have yet to find a bug of anykind and he doesn't scratch much. Things that have changed over this time period: (1) I decreased his food as he is now 1 year (2) In that process I tried to integrate a dehydrated food along with his raw food (Barf Diet) mixing in a small amount of the Ziwi peak dehydrated. This is when I first noticed the scabs. (3) We walk outside every day, in the woods in the Seattle/Tacoma area as well as in a field that has a paved trail. Would you please leave your opinion on what this may be? As well as a solution if possible, I still do not rule out fleas. I have some pictures to post 4 of them are with a dry coat, the clean looking one is right after a bath. Thank you so much for your help! Hopefully we can get this fixed quick!
