Hair loss

by Lisa
(U.S.)

Hi. We have a Pyrenees pup .. 6 months old .. All of his hair has fallen out .. All of it .. It's coming back a little bit .. We are bathing him in an anti fungal shampoo .. He doesn't have an odor .. So I am stumped as to what has caused this to happen. We have switched him to a grain free diet .. but he isn't our only dog .. So this won't be an option for long. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this happened and how I can help my guy? Thank you.

First, talk to the breeder. An ethical breeder will be more than happy to help out. This obviously should not be happening. The breeder will want to know about it since, if it is genetic, they will want to stop that line of dog.

Next. Take him to the vet to have him assessed him. It could be any number of things going on but no one can assess it without seeing the dog. And, a vet is the only one who can do it.

Raw feeding is the best thing you can do for your dog. It's all natural.
