Okay, I have a dog that for some reason is losing the fur on his back and it has gotten a lot worse. My neighbor tried to help me with that problem, what he did was he rubbed car oil to the dogs back and said it will help my dogs bald spot grow back. I have not seen a difference and I’m worried that it could affect the dogs health.
putting car oil on your dog will not make the fur grow.. this is an old farmer’s tale for curing dogs of skin ailments.. it does NOT work.. and it can affect your dog’s health
It will more likely cause more irritations and make the problems worse.. if it doesnt make your dog sick or kill it.
Wash the dog thoughoughly.. Dawn dish soap (the original green kind) will help remove the oil, but is safe to use on animals (its what they use to clean up wildlife during oil spills!).
Make an appt at the vet to find out why your dog is loosing fur.
