Hello,

My 12-week old black and tan is losing hair in patches, even in places that he can't reach with his mouth. He also has very flaky skn. The vet ruled out mites, and we are feeding him Royal Canin Puppy 33. Other than that, he's a very happy and healthy little boy. :-)

Any comments or ideas?

Thanks!

Oh poor little guy! Had the vet checked for mange? Dermatitis? Allergies to fleas?

We're taking Charlie in to see the vet tomorrow. I'll keep everyone posted on his progress. :)

Good luck at the vets - fingers crossed for a quick diagnosis. :xfngr:
If your regular vet cannot find the reason, you might want to see a veterinary dermatologist. :flwr:
