Hello fellow golden owners , long story short my boy is 1 year and pushing 3 months old now , and keep in mind i dont have access to his vet till 2 days from now , what happened what , absolutely out of nowhere he lost a finger tip or two worth of hair on both his back legs ankles almost pararell to each other , and tonight i get a call since i wasnt home and my enzo was with my parents my mom told me his ankles are turning kinda reddish and he’s in pain , so i rush home , his behavior is the same all bright and active and happy to see me so is his diet , but he obviously doesnt wanna put any weight on his right leg , i checked no cracks , tendons intact no weird scars nothing , all though one of the legs semmed i donno kinda bumped or scrapped since there was some sort of dey blood or closed injury mark , and keep in mind enzo is an indoor dog , cant and wont go outside unless he’s goin for a walk with one of us and his vet in on vacation , what can this possibly be ? Should i be concerned?? Im a first time owner so im way too sensitive when it comes to my boys well being

a skin disorder wouldn't make him unwilling to put weight on a leg- the two things may be unrelated. The photos are not clear so can't really see anything except hair missing but it looks like it might be from him sticking feet thru crate or fencing. Since there are no bloody spots like there would be if hair were pulled out all at once, I'd lean to thinking he needs a scrape and looksee w a microscope. Just get into the vet's when you can at earliest. The one pic looks like he is licking. That can do it too. But why is he licking- fleas, whatever?
