Hi, looking for advice, Waffle seems very happy and content but has ongoing problems with her hair/skin. She was seen by a vet in July and given mite treatment although the vet wasn’t convinced she had mites but gave us the treatment anyway. She had her last dose two weeks ago. Her sister seems fine. Today we noticed she has another sore bit - photo attached. Any suggestions would be welcome. She seems very happy in herself so we are wondering if it’s actually not anything to be concerned about.

If she has a sore and no obvious reason for it then she really does need to go back to the vet.
Mites is always a good place to start and depending on the type they often can't be seen, even with a skin scraping so it's always good to rule them out.
What treatment did she get at what strength and what were the dosage intervals?
It may be that it wasn't strong enough or she has a particularly stubborn case that needs a second round.
Your vet may also want to test for otehr things too.

Thanks, she had 3 weeks of invermectin 1%. We will take her back to the vet again. Good to have other opinions. We are first time owners so helps give us the confidence to take her back to the vet again.
