Dog is losing fur on nose

September 15th, 2003, 11:07 AM
We have a 3 year old doxie mix that we adopted last year. Within the last week or so, I've noticed her rubbing her nose on the ground and now it appears that she has lost some fur on the end of her nose.
It's a little patch about the size of a quarter, not completely bald, but it looks like she's malting.

Other than occasionally rubbing her nose on the ground, she is acting normal, but the sudden fur loss has me concerned. Does this sound serious?
