Welcome to the board! Has he been scraped for Demodex? VERY common in the breed (thanks crappy breeders!) and in particular blue colored dogs.

Hi stuntcrazy, you should probably ask your question in the Health Issues forum. But first, you'd need to post a bit more introductory detail about your dog and you -- something along the lines of the sample introduction. :thumbsup:

Did they scrape for mites or do a hair follicle sample? Hair follicle samples will yield results that scrapes can miss. My pups tests came back negative for mites 4 times with multiple scrapes but one section of hair follicle sample showed the mites. Worth asking...
