My son's dog is loosing his hair mainly down each side of his lower spine/back and the tail area. What is it? Is it the scratching and gnawing or does he have mites (or something) or both ? I am trying to get enough money to take him to the vet but in the mean time can it try any medication over the counter.
Hair loss is called alopecia and there are several different causes for alopecia. Some may include allergies, mange or fleas. Fleas are very common this time of year. The best thing to do for your pet is have him examined by your veterinarian for a diagnosis. vetcare
