Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
It is hard to know what may have caused this odd change in texture and pigment of Savannahs coat but I can tell you that this is not any type of poison. Since she is Hypothyroid, it is more likely that this has caused this. Thyroxine is intimately involved with skin and hair and when this is not controlled, these changes can occur. This is not serious but it is worth having your vet check Savannah's thyroid levels to be sure. Other metabolic factors can cause similar issues so it is best, ***** *****'s advanced age, that a complete blood work up to be done to rule out other more serious metabolic conditions.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
