Our precious 3-year golden, Maple, is losing her undercoat, mostly near her hind legs. Her thick undercoat is coming out in patches, and is slowing moving forward on her body. No skin is showing, and the skin is not dry underneath. It's just coming out in clumps.
We just moved from Redondo Beach, CA, to West Chester, PA, about 3 months ago...just in time for winter. It is a lot colder here, so I would think that she would stop shedding and starting packing on the undercoat.
We also have a 1 1/2 year-old son. I know the stress of having to share our attention is causing from stress for Maple. Not sure if the stress is a factor in the undercoat problem.
We normally feed her Nature's Balance, and a month ago tried a bag of the Nature's Balance organic. Same brand, just the organic verison of the food.
Also, every 5 days or so, for the past couple weeks, she has ben throwing up. It seems random, and consists of just yellow bile. We have not caught her eating anything out of the ordinary (cat poop, grass, or anything like that).
I tried to list as many possible factors as I could. We are at a bit of a loss. Any ideas or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Picture of our dear is below...
Thank you so much for any light you can shed (no pun intended) on this.
