Thankyou for your reply Mr Salvin. Yes it was hot spots the vet said she had got. She has been scratching for sometime before these horrible sores started to appear but now it seems to be just her ears she is scratching. At first they were red large patches with small spots which were spore like and weeping. The vet shaved her fur off around the area and they really looked sore. Now after the treatment the sores are scabbing black but look horrible. Her fur is growing back and i can feel small scabs under her skin. The prednisolene tablets have to be broken in half and given every other day she has 4 tablets left do you think she should have any more?. The other tablets have all gone. I have also noticed that she breathes heavy and pants alot which worrrys me. She is eating well but then has to lie down and sleeps alot. Also noticed that she follows me everywhere has if she does not want to be on her own. She does not have that sparkle of old. I will take her back to see the vet and ask to see a dermatologist. His this contagious to humans has i have grandchildren and they play with her. Does it hurt her if i pick her up? Also she has always slept at the bottom of our bed on her blanket.
Waiting for your expert advice.
