Hve just checked her head again and it has already strted to form a nice clean scab which has made me feel a bit happier, just want to know what caused it....and to make sure it doesn't return!!

When I was small we had a jack russell and its hair came out in clumps. It was some skin problem and cleared up with powder from the vet. I remember her being itchy and rubbing herself onnnnn chair legs etc!

It was ringworm....

The only place thing i can think off where she has picked it up is the stray cats farm the farm behind, or the soil!!!.

The vet gave her .3 injections and some cream, she has to go back in two weeks for more jabs.
