    Not sure --- is it possible you can get us a closer picture of the skin? What are you feeding Bruce and how old is he?

    He is 5 months old and he was on purina pro plan. I just switched him to Zignature (similar to Fromm) to see if that helps. It's grain, chicken and corn free.

    We switched him from Purina Beneful to Purina Pro Plan and that is when the hair loss started. It was like 2 weeks afterward. Although the ingredients are that different, so I am not sure how it could have been the food.

    Do the pics look like Mange to anyone? He isn't red and itchy or scabbing. Just fur loss.

    Default Demodex mange.

    That does not look like mange to me, but it could be a skin dermatitis. HAs the vet given you any type of medications? Antibiotics or anything like that? Since it was two weeks after a food change I would almost guarantee it is an immune problem due to a change in the food ingredients. Hopefully the new food will help. As I told you and p.m. I would definitely be looking into nuvet plus. But don't change too many things at once.

    Ugh... I so dislike Purina --sigh. Give the Zignature a few weeks/month to get any results--- if his mange tests came back twice as negative -- i guess this is the route to take

    I am planning on ordering Nuvet plus once the skin thing is cleared up (assuming that happens soon). I dont really want to introduce anything new into his diet while we try to determine what is causing the reaction.

    I just worry my vet isn't good at taking samples or something. I am happy to be rid of purina.

    is zignature a good brand? I was told at Chuck and Don's that it's one of their top brands for dogs with potential allergy issues.
