Can someone please explain to me what this CDA is? My male min pin is 4 yrs old. He is Blue. Has very dry skinunderneath by his back legs and groin area. Has blotcy looking fur, that looks like white spots. Hair loss under neck and underneath, and the blotchyness underneath and now on his back. Ive had him to vets and they have treated him for like a fungus, with medication, and got special shampoo and conditioner to use. Plus he takes a oil capsule 3 to 4 times a week. Nothing seems to be helping, and over the last yr seems to be getting alot worse. So im wondering if its this Alopecia, but cant find any info on it. Any help is appreciated. ty
I have a female that has CDA. I knew nothing about it until I saw something on Facebook about it. I follow the Miniature Pinscher Fan Club. Someone had posted a picture of their blue min pin and someone asked if their dog had hair loss and skin problems. And someone else commented it could be Alopecia. I googled it and that's how I found Color Dilution Alopecia. I give her a bath in a Benzoyl Peroxide shampoo once a week and use Avo Drem oatmeal formula shampoo after to sooth her skin. I learned all of this on line after reading about CDA. I just took my girl to the vet the other day and my vet told me that I was correct as to what she had and I was to continue to use both shampoos. If they get to bad of a break out, a vet will put them on an antibiotic. If you want to read more on it, you can just Google it and find more information.
