Has anyone who owns a Boxer encounted the problem of mainge. My Boxer is 1 year old. At 9 Months old i noticed she was loosing her hair, and having these little red bumps on her neck filled with white pus. It kept getting worse and worse...The vet said it was a type of mainge she inherited from her mom and was not contagious. He put her on Isomex...may be spelled wrong. and now over 3 months later she is cleared up. but i can still see some signs of it on her neck. Has anyone with a Boxer had this same problem. thanks for any feedback.
