So it's been about about a couple of weeks or so and Buddy Bear has lost his hair from his tail. His fur is very fine and very short so he looks bald where he's lost the fur. There is no skin irritation that I can see. He has no other symptoms, completely fine other than losing his fur on his tail.
I honestly don't think he has mange or allergies. The only other thing Google seems to say it can be hyperthyroidism Which me and the vet once had a convo about Buddy Bear having that (not for losing hair but for being under weight) and he said he highly doubts it can be that. But of course only a test can show if he has it.
Which also most likely means he'd need test done.
It seems to be growing back again it's "spotty"
Any thoughts?
