Hi everyone.
I have a little mixed breed pooch.
Last Friday, we noticed a small red circle with a red dot in the middle of it on her belly. From interent research, it sounded like ringworm.
Now, on Monday, the red circle is gone, but the red dot is still there. Now it looks like it could be some type of bite.
Question is: if a dog has ringworm, do it fade? It isn't crusty. The hair is still on it and there are no other signs of anything.
Any thoughts?

Could be lyme disease - a bite from a lyme tick.
I would definitely take your dog to the vet and have him or her professionally diagnosed. Lyme disease caught early is very treatable. Late it is very difficult to treat.

It does sound like ringworm as well...but it could be so many things...why not have a real professional look at it...we can only guess on the forum...
Keep us posted.
