hair loss in a puppy
Hello. I just got back from two weeks building houses in New Orleans yesterday, and my wife cared for our pup Chloe during that time. My wife said that another puppy, a beagle I believe, met Chloe and started really biting at her. As soon as it happened my wife picked up Chloe and left, but she noticed the next day that Chloe had lost some hair. When I got home, I looked at it. There are about 4 spots of hair missing roughly a quarter of an inch in diameter. One is on her hind leg, and the other three are on her right and left sides, behind the ribs but before her hips. The skin underneath is white, not scabby, she doesn't stratch or chew on them and it really worries me. I searched and found out about Seasonal Flank Alopecia, but I also saw that it usually didn't have an onset until they were older. Chloe is 18 weeks old. Is it possible that it is seasonal alopecia at this age. She is going to the vet later today. Does anyone have any suggestions?
