She doesn't have a low thyroid problem, and the vet said she would need to do a skin biopsy. Has anyone ever had this problem? My dog is half shepherd/husky.
My dog is losing hair around her neck, and near her hips. What could be the cause of this?
First of all, listen to your vet. Go ahead and do the biopsy. What kind of dog food do you feed your dog? It could be a nutritional problem. Maybe you should think of buying a vitiman made specifially for dogs, for skin and coat health. I order vitimans for my pets from Pilgrim's Pride.
Also, after bathing your dog, be sure to rinse soap off thoroughly. I have a Siberian Husky, and these dogs do have sensitive skin. You might need to use a special oatmeal shampoe.

Get an anti-microbial dog shampoo.

Reply:the only thing I have ever heard that can cause it is Fish. I Visit the beach a lot and the Dogs that eat Fish loose all their hair. Ask a Vet. They can help you better than Yahoo.
