My black spoo puppy, Francie, has once or twice gotten a scab that rather than going away, seems to build and grow. Today when I bathed her, I spend about 20 minutes working at a spot on her head - when I finally got it broken down, there wasn't even a sore underneath (already healed), it was just a tangled spot of grossness. Honestly, her fur is so black and thick, its really hard to even see the problem....
This is my first poodle, and I'm finding that I have to do everything differently than I would my other non-poodles.
My question(s) are: Is this buildup (rather than just shedding the scab and it falling off) typical for poodles, and is there a tip anyone can offer for an easier way to clean it up - and maybe some advice on how to keep this from occuring at all.
Thanks in advance to all of you in this forum, you've been so helpful with navigating this wonderful breed in the past.
