Our 1.5 year old female red-and-white basenji has some patchy hair loss developing on her right side. At first I just thought it was an abrasion, and wasn't too worried about it, but I've noticed that the patch has gotten larger and a few smaller patches have appeared. Otherwise, she is a very healthy girl. I know there are many causes of hair loss in dogs, and I'll probably make her an app't at the vet soon, but I just wanted to throw it out there and see if anyone has had anything similar happen to their dog… any thoughts/suggestions?
I've attached a photo - not sure how well you can see the patches in it though.
