    Default Loosing fur

    Its hard to say without a trip to the vet there can be many causes, Demodex mites that live in the hair follicles and can cause isolated patches of hair loss without being itchy.Some dogs can develops a flea allergy.Both food and environmental allergies can also cause hair loss .But this time of the year it could be seasonal alopecia .Is its itchy or not and what is she eating x

    I would have her thyroid checked. Please ask the vet to do bloodwork for thyroid.

    I would give her a couple of squirts of salmon oil every morning with the pork and peas, Buster had the same thing once he got on salmon oil it was gone.

    Looks like the hair loss that looks had for a while, gets worse before it gets better. Lola's hair grew back when we changed her food. Darn allergies.
