    Default Lotion for Seasonal Alopecia spots?

    I notice my dogs hair thinning in April of 2015. Went totally bald by July in both spot on both flanks. Still waiting for it togrow back. On one of the spots the black color is beginning to turn greyish in the middle and appears to be drying out. Is there an ointment or lotion for this. Thanks.

    I don't know of any ointment, but some say melatonin helps.

    @chemist The best you can do is start giving him melatonin 3mg. and put NuStock on the bald areas about once every 3 days(rub it in.) That may help the hair grow back.
    I believe giving melatonin before winter help prevent or have a milder case of SA. p.s. The NuStock comes in a large tube.You must squish it around real well to mix it up.

    Lola had allergy related balding, we used vitamin E capsules - just poke a hole in one and squirt out some of the jelly to rub on the skin. We also noticed a huge increase in hair regrowth when we put some raw salmon in her diet.

    Dogs can take biotin. A clinical study of 119 cases found that 91% of*dogs*experienced positive results. Their skin conditions or fur problems were either totally cured or improved. Depending on your*dog's*situation, it may be worth trying especially since canine formulated*Biotin*supplements are now on the market. Interesting!
