Dog loosing hair

July 14th, 2005, 12:05 PM
Hi I am new here.
I have a little dog that was dropped by my house. I don't know what breed she is, she looks like a chihuahua, but has long red hair.She weighs about 6-7pounds.
She has started losing hair around her butt, and rubs her but across the floor.
Anyone have any ideas what this could be, and what to do about it ?

Please bring her to the vet. It's possibly her anal glands that are full (that's the a$$ drag) but the hair lost could be hormonal, and she would need treatment. Otherwise, it could be something more serious.

There are longhaired Chihuahuas, you know?

Thanks for taking your dog to the vet.
