Hi there!<br /><br />I just need a little more information to give you the best possible answer.<br /><br />1. Is your puppy itching, especially on it's head?<br />2. Are there any bumps present?<br />3. Is the hair loss patchy or uniform all over? Is she losing hair anywhere else?<br />4. Is there any way you can attach a picture?<br />5. Is she having any other problems?<br />6. What food are you currently feeding her now?<br /><br />Thank you!<br /><br />Dr. Kelly
