Why is my dog losing hair?

He is losing hair around his eyes, and feet... Just in certain patches? It is thinning, not completely gone. Is that normal?

  • It sound like Mange to me. I would get him in to the vet, so that they can do a skin scraping and even take some fur to culture and check for ringworm.

  • Take your dog to a vet. It could a number of things including mange (mites), ringworm (fungus), and also allergies. Nobody can tell you better than your vet.
