Welcome! :wave:

Fizzy's way cool mum is right about thyroid problems but it could also be a skin reaction to something else - allergies, heat, etc.

Is she scratching? If so, an oatmeal based shampoo and bath might be in order.

Good luck!

There are many things that can cause hair loss. Are the areas itchy and flaky? Does she scratch a lot? If so, it can be related to a thyroid problem. It could also indicate fleas or some type of mange. I would recommend you have your vet check this. Whatever the cause, I doubt it will go away on its' own.
