Is he blue? Chloe is blue and has the exact same problem. It is common for blues to have thinning and or balding spots. My vet recommended .5 melatonin for Chloe.

here's dexter's hair thinning when he was a pup... (at first i thought it was just him goin thru puppy uglies)

here we was before the thinning was noticeable

and here he is currently...
thinnin on head plus 1/2 of his back


still havent found a proper vet to find out how hes having hairloss. he was tested for mange when he was a pup and it was negative. the last vet said its "probably not alopecia since he's patching not in just 1 spot but various areas"....so who knows why? LOL....he does love to wear clothes still waitin on results from bloodtest to see if anything in the blood is found to cause this...since he has elevated ALT in his liver/thyroid? just thought i would add this in just in case. have u had the blood tested?

4bsingreece, my Roxie has that too! I've noticed my friend's chihuahua has that, too. I thought it was normal, but maybe it's hairloss? Shrug. Anyway, I think it's cute.
