Hello my name is Lissbeth, I hope you can help my dog. A Chihuahua mix amd has been like 2 weeks and she has been loosing a lot of her fur, she has loss hair in the part where the collar goes. It looks like it's not normal, but I still want to make sure it is not her shedding. She is around 4 years of age. Thank you very much. I hope to receive the email quickly.

Dear Lissbeth,

It doesn't sound like normal shedding. Many dogs are exhibiting allergy symptoms and hair loss at this time of the year. You could try DERMA-IONX to improve the coat and skin. PROBIOTICS, and OMEGA 3,6,9 are also helpful to address the more common causes of hair loss. You also need to make sure you are not dealing with fleas or mites. If you have them they need to removed in order to break the cycle. If something more is needed you should see your veterinarian for a diagnosis.

Please keep us updated and we can help guide you.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
