Pug Hair Loss

I have a question. We are new to breeding pugs. BOTH of our females had a significant amount of hair loss over entire body after whelping. Is this NORMAL??

Your dog needs to go to the vet. Were the dogs health tested before breeding them.

Have you talked to your breeder? They might know pugs best and whether or not this is a genetic disorder that you wouldn't want to breed with.

Otherwise, I would see the vet and while you're there, why not ask about health testing for breeding purposes. They can run tests to see if your males and females have good genes and would produce the best offspring possible. :)
