Thank you for using our service.
If his hair is flaky, you should make an appointment with a vet to pinpoint the cause. It is likely to be an infection (parasitic, bacterial, fungal). Till you visit a vet, put on an e-collar or anything that can prevent him from interacting with the compromised skin areas. Also, when you take a shower with him, keep the bath short with lukewarm water. After bathing, make sure to dry his hair with the appropriate wind (hot wind can burn his skin).
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
