Factors Responsible For Hair Loss In Dogs
Mange is a skin disease caused by mites. Mange caused by mite bites generates itching in dogs. Itching makes your dog scratch the skin too resulting in hair loss.
Dogs are allergic to a lot of things like fleas, food, and a compound in skin products, and several dogs are allergic to some environment which does not suit them. Few strains such as Bulldogs, Golden Retrievers, and Yorkshire terrier are more inclined towards getting allergies. Allergies cause hair loss, itching, redness on the skin, hot spots and lumps.
Hair loss may also be caused as a result of the excessive barking of dogs. This condition is referred to as acral lick dermatitis. Excessive licking deteriorates the hair follicle and this contributes to a shedding of hair.
Some infections that cause baldness are ringworm, seborrheic dermatitis, folliculitis, and cancer. Hair loss brought on by infections can be observed in the kind of nodules with pus or without it, redness, scaling, and hot spots.
Hormonal imbalance such as pituitary dwarfism, thyroid disorders, and adrenal gland deficiency may be the reason for hair loss in dogs.
