Hi Leah, thanks for your question.

Can you tell me more about what is going on with Little Brother?

Do you have a picture to share?

Are there large patches of hair missing when the hair falls out or does it regrow?

What kind of flea/tick prevention are you using?

What color (or colors) is your boy naturally?

Is he neutered?
