It doesn’t look healed or anything. But it seems to be growing out. The second pic is a closeup where you can see some lighter hair strands peaking through. It still doesn’t look normal though. The vet did tell me it would take several weeks for it to start growing back (this is with the pyoderma diagnosis and antibiotics treatment).Thank you so much . I’m glad it’s growing back foe you. Please keep me updated and new pics would be great…
A second groomer at the same place thought the same thing - in regards to it being from a bruise - after I picked her up yesterday. So one groomer told me when I showed her toast when I dropped her off. Then a second groomer told me the same thing when I picked her up. It is just their opinion though, but I figure they see a lot of things like this.
This is my current theory, but I’m still stumped: Toast wasn’t matted when we took her to the groomer on June 11th, but I’d say she was probably more tangled than normal. We had been on vacation the week before, and weren’t brushing her. Then her hair appointments got thrown off, so she was about a week late in her grooming when she finally had her appointment on June 11. I’ve been reading of their fur is matted, it affects blood flow. And maybe if the groomer went really hard brushing Toast at the june 11 appointment? Maybe that caused her to bruise? And maybe on her back is just more sensitive to brushing? This is totally me speculating though. And the only reason is because Toast has no other symptoms that match any diagnosis. My gut just tells me she doesn’t fit in the diagnosis the vet gave her. I know they are trying and haven’t seen this before, so they need to start somewhere. But just reading about the symptoms, none of them- except generally weird fur - fit pyoderma. And even the weird fur in the pyoderma pictures don’t match what Toast has.
Either way, I’m still going to take her back into the vet and suggest the blood work you had done. And the skin biopsy. But I’m also wondering if this bruise theory has anything to it?
