    Default Scab

    Hello,
    Bungee has had a scan on her back for just over a month. We've been to the vets twice during this time for other things, but both vets have looked at the scab and although puzzled by it, didn't seemly overly concerned.
    I'm just wondering what it is and if we should ho back to the vets again?
    Anyone have any ideas?
    Thanks x

    They don't think it's mites. It's very dry and flaky. When the vet picked it a bit it started to bleed.
    Bungee is a single house bun, do can't be a bite from another bun.

    So maybe just a reaction? It's right where she would have had her jab.
