I have a newly rescued chi who is practically bald on her head. Any recommendation for helping her.

I have heard peoplewith the blue chi's often have problems. What color is your little girl? you should probable take her to the vet, I think there can be several reasons for hair loss. Including diet?
Not much help maybe someone with more knowledge will jump on here and give you some advice.

One is fawn, one is black tan. They are 1/2 of their normal expected body weight, probably severe malnutrition. Already vetted them and had skin scraping which was negative. Just wondering if any knew of a vitamen or something that could help them

Just on their head? Like around their eyes/ears? It is probably Chihuahua Pattern Baldness...not a whole lot can be done for it, you can give The Missing Link, my chihuahua Zoey grew back some hair on her neck/chest area on that supplement. I also use Melatonin for alopecia 1mg per 11#.

If it isnt Chihuahua baldness and it is a skin issue you can try Vitamin E oil. Not sure what else to add? Would like to see pics?
