I believe her hair loss is due to fleas. She may be pregnant. She has not been to a local vet. The owner has neglected to give proper care and has left her here with me.

Dear Vickie,

I would use a fine tooth flea comb to check for fleas. If you catch any fleas crush them or put them into a little rubbing alcohol.

Keep checking a few times a day. Is the skin broken or is there only hair loss? You can wipe her down with a damp wash cloth to get rid of any flea debris to avoid having her ingesting it when grooming. Looking forward to your reply.

Best regards,

Dr. Char
