That should be looked at by a vet. They can take a skin scrap and see if it is anything to worry about, also they will give you meds to put on it or take orally for the problems.
good luck with her.

What's a Shiba-uni??? I think it's Inu. OK, take this dog to the vet. Now!!! It could be something to worry about. Please??? Will you take her to the vet??

Hi - well, it wouldn't hurt to have a vet take a look at this area in question?
**also, you can try a few supplements - good for any dog of any age...

Vitamin E 50 IU just 1 per day is great... VERY low dosage - a cat dosage...

Also, Some Oil added to your kid's food / you can do a teaspoon of olive oil each day and mix.

NuVET skin and coat wafers - great natural canine supplement/ vitamins

Silver shield is a natural salve from natures sunshine - great to have for the entire family.
~place on wounds and pimples - this is not a medicaiton..
