    There are many reasons a dog has scabs. It could be fleas mainge, or any other number of dog itching problems. The scabs is caused by scratching. You should take your dog to the vet to find out for sure what your dog has.

    The dog that lives in my house gets scabs because she scratches herself in one spot too often and creates a wound that eventually scabs. I would go with that for your dog as well.

    Could be scabies or the mange. Both cause scabbing and hair loss due to the mites that get under their skin and cause horrible itching. You have to take him to the vet for meds to clear it up.

    If he has a lot of them, for no reason, like playing with another dog. Then it might be a good idea to take him to a vet, he could be sick. Ive heard of it before
