    Default Thinning hair

    Brodie has spots on his back that look like the hair is thinning. It is only on his back and he is not itching. It kinda looks a little darker in the spots. The spots are not bald and they are only on the top of his back. He is fawn colored and I read that can happen on the fawn color and rougher hair grows in but its not all over him. I dunno, any ideas? Oh and he is eating Avoderm grain free red meat and potatos. Here is a pic.

    i think i can kinda see what you are talking about. does it look like he's been rained on? my first fawn bully had that too and it was some dermatological condition that was cleared up with meds. i think @jortiz9758 has experience with this as well.

    Hi ...Yes bruno had those little spots all over, mostly on his sides. AT first I thought it was ringworm. The Vet and the breeder I got him from suggested I treat him with Ivomec. I did just that for about a month and he improved a whole lot. He really improved when I took the kibble away from him and switched him to RAW. He was on taste of the wild grain free Pacific formula.
    This is what a few of the spots on him looked like.

    Yuna has had this twice, both times it went away on it's own. She is also fawn, but I change dog food for trials quite often. She was also young, could be hormones as well. She just kinda blew her coat and went away within a couple of weeks.

    @jortiz9758 did the Vet say what it was?

    @desertskybulldogs I did read about the hormone thing too, he is 7 months old right now so he is probably at that stage growing up too fast!!

    oh my Goodness, i was just going thru the posts and saw this picture, This looks almost identical to what we were dealing with , with Diesel ! he is more white, so you can see on some spots there are little white bumps also, i posted in another thread, they tested for Demodex , it came back negative, then gave him a allergy shot, altho he seems to be getting them again. We live in Ohio, and the allergies this time of year are terrible, what are you guys speaking of with the hormones ? Im afraid i havent heard of that ?
