  • It's possible it could be mild alocpecia. The lashes tend to thin, and it doesn't have to be both sides either. If it is, there really isn't much you can do to treat alopecia if it is. I would suggest taking her to a doctor to get bloodwork done to make sure her levels are normal. Lack of certain minerals and vitamins can cause that too.

  • She might not be aware that she is pulling them out.
