    Did it start off as a hot spot and because of constant licking has turned black ( a little scaly) ? Well my Samson had this due to some allergies he started constantly licking himself, his pink skin turned black! But with some oatmeal, antifungal antibacterial shampoo it is going away! THANK GOD! Cause it really freaked me out! I Wash him every two days and have seen a significant difference in 1 week, also FYI. His diet might be to blame if he is darting at whatever falls under the dinner table then he maybe getting stuff he is not supposed to be eating ( or on his dog food) ive cracked down on what sam eats and doesnt and no more weird spots with no hair ( hair still in process of growing back but its on a positive turn around!!! ) try it!
    good luck,!

    I'm not familiar with, or have any experience with this, but hopefully someone on here can give you some advice or help. Maybe you could post a picture of the area, and black spot, so someone can recognize what it is. Just wanting to say I hope you find out what it is, and can clear it up, hoping its nothing serious, and that she feels better soon. Sending hugs and prayers your way. Keep us posted.

    Can you take a picture of it?

    I think what you may be talking about is a condition where the skin turns black on the flank and the hair falls out?out. does it look something like this? Seasonal Flank Alopecia

    Seasonal Flank Alopecia is what it sounds like to me. It isnt life threatening.

    What if anything can you do, it doesn't seem to bother her.

    I had a foster who had flank alopecia. My vet put him on a daily dose of melatonin.

    For me, her name was Abby
