Hair Loss

12 posts in this topic

Anybody know what would be causeing hair loss in a dog. As of now she has starting losing it on her front elbows and her arm pits and pretty much her whole inside of her back legs and just starting to come around to the outside. She does also have some sort of rash on her belly but no where else. Im planing on getting her to the vet this week but hopin somebody had an idea here.

I thought of that but with mange there is always redness and scabby looking and she doesnt have that. Her only redness is on her belly which i think is something totally different than what is making her hair fall out.

Have you checked out the thread that I had for the bald spots on my dog?

I think that adding yogurt to my dogs diet is curing her.

How old is the dog and is she overweight? Dogs with thyroid issues can lose hair in those spots as well as dogs with Cushing's disease. Both develop in middle aged dogs and one of the first signs is a weight problem and hair loss in the groin and armpits. Could be allergies. Could still be mange depending on whether it's caused by demodex or sarcoptic mites. They cause different reactions. Could be nothing at all. My dog did the same thing. I went through all the tests and found out he just didn't want to grow hair in those spots. He was normal.

I second Soldiergirls thoughts... We have a golden retriever that had trouble with hair loss. Vet finally figured out it was a thyroid problem. She how gets pills twice a day and her coat is as nice as it has ever been.

I have a Choc lab who this happens to every spring and summer. It has to be some sort of allery. It usually starts on his belly being red and then hair loss starts in clumpy little spots. This year it is happening on his neck. For him I have ruled out thyroid because it happens the same time every year, mange because my other choc lab does not have any issues and there are always together. I always use and anti bacterial lotion on his red spots. This year I am using benedryl to see if it can help him with his scratching which isn't constant but he gets into it once he starts.

Took her to the vet and they said it is allergies most likely to the grass of all things! They gave me some spray and some pills. I too have a another dog her sistyer and she had no problems. Hopefully the stuff works.

At 10 months old she might be starting to come into heat for the first time. Sometimes a change in a female body system can cause a lot of hair loss till they go through the cycle.

Maybe it's some type of food allergy. Have you tried changing her feed?

    • A CO2 detector also protects you from what comes into your house thru a cracked window. Had mine go off last week on red. Turns out the wind had changed and generator exhaust was now blowing towards house. Generator was 50' from the house. 
    • After I got laid off awhile back I searched all of the above daily.  There would be some duplicate jobs posted on every site but a large number would only be found on one site or the other.  Companies seem to have their preferred job board and then stick to it for all their job postings so you really need to look at all of them.    Also don't over look the idea of targeting companies.  If you know a certain area you'd be looking to move to look to see what companies in that area might be able to use someone with your skills.  Then look at those companies job boards if they have them or send in a resume to their HR dept to see if they have any openings.  There are a lot of hidden jobs out there that don't get posted to a normal job board so you need to be savvy to find them.    A recruiter can also help but you need to find the right recruiter. I worked with a few and only one was really any good and had connections to the right kind of jobs for me.  If you can find one that specializes in your field then it might be worth connecting with one.  When i did it didn't cost me anything but a little bit of my time and they were able to hook me up with a decent contract job to help fill in the gap until i got on full time somewhere. 
    • Trump Touts "People Are Seeing Big Stuff” After GM Unveils 7,000 New U.S. Jobs   Confirming rumors that leaked yesterday, GM has just announced plans to invest $1 billion in its U.S. manufacturing operations and add 7,000 jobs domestically, over the next "few years".  Of course, the move follows similar announcements from Ford and Fiat-Chrysler over recent weeks in an apparent effort to appease the incoming Trump administration amid threats of a 35% import tariff and after years of outsourcing automotive manufacturing jobs to Mexico.  To add icing to the cake, GM notes that 450 of the new jobs will come from insourcing jobs previously moved to Mexico.          The winning continues...
    • Hyundai To Boost Investment In The US To $3.1 Billion Over 5 Years   Korea's Hyundai Motor Group said it plans to lift U.S. investment by 50 percent to $3.1 billion over five years and may build a new plant there - the latest auto firm to announce fresh spending after President-elect Donald Trump threatened to tax imports.      
    • This is our year! i feel there is something different about them! I see the passion and intensity they have. Putting the puck on the net is key!
    • OK, let's play you're game. Deficits and debt are no problem, I'll take your word for it.    Please tell me then:
      Why does YOUR party want to reduce the debt?
      Why was your party against debt when Obama was racking it up?
      Why do you vote for Republicans when you don't agree with them on very many issues?
    • What I worried about in the past and why I was not to high on them was because Parise and Sutter were supposed to carry the load but that is evidently no longer the case.  The Sophomores and Juniors have "figured it out" and have stepped up and are carrying the team...not to mention Stall is "reborn".  IMO as long as Dubnyk stays healthy I don't think we have anything to worry about. It is all about he playoffs now as they'd have to take a huge step back not to get in IMO....we'll so how far they can go....with this new found success.  
    • Grain Belt is bottled by Schell's - either one works for me, although my preference is Schell's Deer Brand.  But it's not stocked in a lot of bars or package stores here in the north country.
