Hi, it's Lisa in TX again. I tried to reply with this problem yesterday, but accidently used all caps. Sorry! Well here is my problem: I have two dane pups with hair loss on their tails. The hair loss covers most of the tail. It have tried rubbing vit. E, scrubbing it with soap, and had a vet do a skin scrape; the vet had no answer for me. It came out negative for mange. (thank goodness):) One of the pups is my show pup and would like to clear this up ASAP. If anyone has an idea or knows what this might be, please let me know. Thanks in advance, Lisa in TX.
What do you feed your dogs Lisa? It sounds like an allergy, actually it sounds like a whole bunch of things. If you've ruled out all the bugs, and the environmental nuisances, I'd try the food next. Have you talked to the breeder? The next thing I'd do is a complete blood panel. I think I asked you before if there was any rash, or is it just hair loss? Let us know what you find out, and goodluck.
