    Seasonal alopecia is hormonal and since Wally was Just neutered maybe jos hair loss is also hormonal. Maybe it Just takes jos body some Time to adjust. Vitamiinit D and Melatonin would Be My choice too.

    I agree... it just seems so coincidental that this is the first time this has happened since his neuter.

    It's on both sides, and I'm 99% sure it's alopecia... but he has never had any of this before. I sent pics to the vet, but is there anything you can do for it besides the melatonin? What about giving benadryl?!! Ugh my poor boy
    I just posted something regarding Nu-Stock that my breeder swears by.. she also said....
    Her girlfriend rescued a dog with horrible mange & advantGe multi & this stuff cleared her right up...she also uses it on her horses when they get nicks, or if the dogs have any kind of skin damage due to rough play etc.

    Bare in mind that's her opinion! She breeds EB but does have horses, bunnies, Yorkshire.... her dogs are all beautiful and never seen anything wrong with any of them.

    I have heard only good things about Nu-Stock... I know that Lynn uses it too @Manydogs

    Where can you buy it? Is it a powder?

    @ddnene You can buy it online from the company, or you can go to a horse/farm supply, most of them have it. It's about $13.99 for a large tube. It never goes bad. If it dries up,you can mix some mineral oil or baby oil in it to moisten it again. It has a sulphur smell-you may not want to have Wally rubbing it all over the furniture!

    So I'm assuming that I rub this on the bald spots... does it smell bad enough so that Willow won't try to lick it off?!! She's an idiot about lotion and that kind of stuff...

    I heard it smells. Lynn would be better to answer that as she uses it. I know I'll be buying some to have on hand.

    @ddnene Yes, you would rub it on the bald spots. I have problems with Maude,sometimes Martha,because they will lick and lick each other! Martha will stop,if I "insist" but Maude doesn't listen!!
