My friends French bulldog is 4 years old and his coloring

Customer Question

My friends French bulldog is 4 years old and his coloring has gotten a little weird. He's black and starting to fade to brown and light brown almost like a brindle (which he is not) He's also losing his hair a bit. Wanted to see if there could be a health issue going on?

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Any scratching, licking or itchy behavior?
2) When was his thyroid last tested, if ever?
3) Where is he losing the hair from primarily? Any obvious thinning?
4) On any medications at this time?
