Hair loss?

I could be going crazy, but it seems my puppy is losing hair behind her two front legs.

Anyone have a general idea what it could be?

I think perhaps you're noticing less fur around the elbow joint? If that's the case, it's likely from laying on harder surfaces.

If that's not what you're talking about, and perhaps you're talking about behind the pastern, it could have to do with potential allergies or irritation causing chewing in that area.

But to be honest, I'm kind of with Jax on this... where is the hair loss exactly?

The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.

I'm seeing a narrow area from the elbow down where it looks like the leg was shaved/clipped and the hair is growing back ?....is that what you mean ?...did you just get the dog ?..... has it had any surgeries or recent IV in that leg ?....

Be kind to your dog..he's only a few years of your life
but you.. are ALL of his life

That's where I was looking at, she does tend to lie down and not move for hours so probably that.

Thanks
