This isn't about my beautiful Golden boy, but my other just-as-beautiful dog, Hiro.
I've noticed over the last month or so that he's lost a LOT of fur. His stomach fur was always short, but now he's nearly bald along the inside of his back legs and up to his ribcage. I freaked out a little bit, but my husband insisted we try to fix it ourselves before jumping to conclusions.
We've changed him over to Blue Buffalo Wilderness Duck formula - no grains, no chicken, which I know he could be allergic to and could cause hair loss. (As a side note, my boys are doing fine with their stools) No change.
He's been no more itchy than before that I've noticed; he does gnaw on his hind legs a little more I think? I treated both dogs for fleas a couple weeks ago - not that I saw any fleas to begin with - but that doesn't seem to have slowed him down. I've been noticing what looks like dandruff when I brush him, but his skin isn't flaky or scaly. No odd bumps, lumps, or sore spots that I've noticed.
I have an appointment on Wednesday and I'm sure I'll get an answer then, but I trust the men and women on this forum: anybody have a clue what could be causing my dog to lose fur like this, or how to fix it? It worries me so much, I've never seen anything like it before
