Since Whisky has been a pup she has had a spot on her back that was a little bit warmer than the rest of her skin and the hair was very coarse. She has always scratched at that area and bit it some, but the vet said the skin looked fine and I shouldn't worry. The skin is warm, but not red or inflamed in any way, but the a hair has fallen out. This just happened over the last couple of days. I think that Whisky is going through the blowing coat phase, but I am concerned that it is something more. I have just started her on fish oil, as her skin is very dry. Should I just take her to the vet and have them run tests? I don't want her poked and prodded, but I don't want her to suffer either. I have considered changing her diet away from chicken products, but not sure what to give her. She is 10 months now, so we are close to switching her to adult food. Has anyone else had a dog that lost some hair? I will post a picture tonight.
