Is he itching? Does he have any other symptoms? What color is he?

A little more information please, there can be many causes for hair loss.

He is a blue chi. His hair started to fall out when she gave him royal Cain for adults he was only 3 months then she switch to puppy chow with out easing him off of it . It is sloooooowly growing back if doesn't seem to bother him at all.

Hair loss can be a genetic thing in blue chi's and could have absolutley nothing to do with his diet......I think its pretty common for blues to loose alot, if not all of their hair eventually.Now you have an excuse to buy cute lil sweaters for him!

Yes it can be genetic. It's called Color Mutant Alopecia or Alopecia X.
If a pup has this condition, it should not be bread nor should the mother be bread anymore.
If your lucky your pup will just experience hair loss with no other symptoms. Usually though there are other things like food allergies that accompany the hair loss.
The only thing that you can really do is give them the Omega 3 Fatty Acids. At this time there is no cure.

I put Omega 3 and CoQ30 in Cooper and OmaKitty's food every night. Their coats are so beautiful and Cooper's, especially, is shiny and healthy looking. Before I began using the Omega 3, it was a bit dull and rough. I highly recommend it!
