Weird eye problem?
 
So Sage has this spot in the front of her eye that is missing hair. Like a bald spot. I just started noticing it a week or so ago. But wanted to wait for it to get better but it hasn't. Now the same thing had started on her other eye. What is it? Have you guys seen this before? I tried searching but found nothing. I will take it to get checked out but wanted to ask you guys first.

Here are some pictures. Thanks!!

We had a very similar thing happen once, when Hans had a little scab there and it came off. I was puzzled as to why he would have a scab there, and the only thing I could think of was that he had rubbed his eye with this paw and scratched that spot with his dew claw.
Might also be mange.

Well she never had a scab. And I have never seen her mess with either eye. I looked up mange and it would seem odd to only be happening in a small spot by each eye.

If it is in both eyes, it's likely that it is mange. This is the beginning of it. Might be a really easy fix if it is caught this early.

It could be caused due to the weather, allergies and the heating in your home. Her eyes may get a little goopy and the goop dries. She'll rub the dried goop due to it pulls the hairs as it dries & clumps. The skin under the goop can get irritated as well and cause her to scratch, rub.

Or it could be mange.
