Hi I'm Dr Pulter. Please give me a moment to type up a reply to your question.
Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Hair loss in dogs can be frustrating. The simplest answer is that she is rubbing the hair off due to some other issue with her eye. It is possible that she could have some allergy that affects the area around the her eye, but that usually both eyes are involved. It will be very important to have it looked at by a veterinarian. They will likely do a few tests such as a skin scraping to look for mites, skin impression to look for infection and possibly a fungal culture. If there is something going on with her eyes then appropriate testing will be done for that. If you have a cone to place around her neck, this will help protect her eye from further damage until she can get in to see a veterinarian. I hope this has answered your question. Please reply with any additional questions. Rating me now will not close the question, so you can still continue the conversation.

She seems itchy I just gave her 25mg Benadryl. She is an 80 lb dog so 25 is low dose. Want to see if the itchy goes down.
You can certainly try to see if that helps.

Hello are you there?
Aww she's so cute. It does look like the eye is rubbed. But I can't make any diagnosis online. You will definitely need to keep it protected until you can see your vet.
