Tiny bald spot developed in 24 hours on my 6 and 1/2 months old chihuahua
 
Hi
I am not sure if I need to see the vet or not. My female puppy chihuahua mix got 2 tiny bald spots in less than 2 days. There is no red or itching involved. I checked the spots and they dont look like any kind of roundworm or lice or anything is around it. Is this just notmal for her age?

Any photos? She's likely blowing out her puppy coat. Do a quick Google search on Chihuahua "puppy uglies". Many Chi pups will blow out their puppy coats faster than their adult coats come in, which can result in bald spots sporadically. She's about the right age for it.

Is she a smooth or a long coat chi? Sometimes puppies can have issues with tiny microscopic mites. If it gets worse I would have have it checked out. How old is she? Typically they wouldn't blow puppy coat until approximately 4 months.

She's six and a half months (in the thread title), which is what lead to me thinking blowing out a coat over mange. But more info would help!
