My male is licking/eating my female's hair off her back. She has large spots without hair. This has been going on for two weeks. What is the cause?

Eating Hair
by: Donna

I can only think that he needs fibre for his system? Do they get outside where they have access to grass? Dogs will eat grass to ease an upset tummy. They need that fibre.

Perhaps someone else will have a different answer.

Yes, they're well maintained outside dogs. I live on a acre, they have plenty of grass. Neither one eats grass though. Thanks for your input!

Fungus?
by: Nashville

See your vet. It might be some sort of fungus that gives off an interesting odor and taste to the other dog?
