    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.

    We changed her food to Salmon as the protein, and there wasnt any change for the better. That is why we tried 'The Missing Link' I'm just wondering, is it coming in due to 'summer' or due to the suppliment

    No, it's summer. Not the supplement. Last year, I didn't do anything for it because her vet (and everyone else I know) said there's really nothing you can do about it. It doesn't hurt or itch --- so its just cosmetic. For Bea, the salmon oil helped for sure.

    Either that our she's "un-caught" seasonal flank alopecia. I don't think you can do that....?

    From my reading, SFA runs in cycles - they could lose alot (like Gizmo) and after 2 years it could be back to normal, or every year it thins - its REALLY hit or miss. There is no sure fire fix - I will state this as an observation - her black patches (bald to the skin) were rough and leathery - but not after 2 months on this supplement -

    Some dogs 'Uncatch it' as in they have 1 episode in their lives and that is it. - This year she has free rein of the house - before her kennel was in the middle of the house (out of direct sunlight as we didnt want to over heat her) and studies say its the amount of sunlight a dog gets, (less direct sun in the winter, hence the 'seasonal' part of SFA) I dont know, really I dont, but there's a change, and we'll keep adding it to her food - (hoping) that is the reason for the hair coming back in. I guess we'll find out this winter

    @RaRett - You know, I have heard that too! Dr. Terry suggested "sunbathing" as a possible help with it.

    Last year, without any intervention at all -- no salmon oil, no nothing --- Bea's hair grew back in beautifully. And last year, she had those big black leathery patches on both sides.
