Allergies

Does anyone else have this problem with their Havanese? The hair above my little Yoyo's eyelids has been falling out and the vet told me that this is a sign of an allergic reaction, probably due to environmental allergens, which I can understand because he always has his nose to the ground or in some grass or bush whenever he can.

It just looks so worrisome with the little bald spot above his eyes!

I dont have problems like that with my havanese, but I did with my cat. She lost the hair on her eyes and chin - and it was an allergic reaction to her food bowl!! When she touched it. She has been gone for a few years, but I think it was the metal bowls, then I had to go to ceramic. I would try changing the bowls first.

What an interesting observation! In fact, my dog doesn't seem to like his metal food bowls; he barks at them after he eats, but I thought it was just a weird quirk/habit of his. I'll definitely try changing his food bowls, thanks!

WellI can also say that my Lily wont eat out of a metal bowl that is elevated. We think it is because her tags clink on it and she doesnt like that sound so close to her - go figure!!

most dogs are allergic to plastic and clay bowels...we would always tell you to change to metal bowels. So I would not change that...however I would consider having the vet skin scrape above his eyes, it could be demodex mange...not to worry if that is what it is you can't get it and neither can any other dog. If we had puppies come in with patchy hair loss we always skin scraped them. Just a thought.
