Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What tests have been done?

When his liver function was checked by blood sample, did his vet note that he had low red blood cells (anemia)?

Are his gums pink, pale/white, or yellow tinted?

Has he been on any treatment other then the shampoo?

Does his hair loss seem symmetrical on his body?
