    I have no experience with this but have heard of it. At this time no one knows why this occurs. It is felt to be a hormonal problem disrupting hair follicles. Some say that Melatonin will help with this, I do not know the dosage, but maybe your vet can help. You can by it over the counter.

    Yep... melatonin is what I've heard as well... I do not have experience with it but I know a bully owner that does and he uses that when it flares up.
