4 year old golden retriever losing fur - causes?
We have a 4 year old golden who is losing his fur everywhere. This is not a normal shedding period for him and we are at a loss for what could be the cause. We have ruled out mites, bacterial infections, thyroid and are now battling down the road of allergy testing. Has anyone had a golden who had severe hair loss due to allergies? He has progressed for itching over the spring/summer to hair loss late this fall ... we are still wondering if it could be the early stages of a thyroid problem...any input or help would be appreciated. On top of this he seems to have a yeast overgrowth on his body....
