Our 3 yr old boxer has fur loss on her sides. The vet said it was probably seasonal alopecia but she also vomits usually 4 times a week so I'm second guessing it. My boyfriend thinks it's because she's eating things off the floor like a piece of thread was in her vomit the other day. Before that he thought it was from all the table scraps she got but we put a stop to that over a month or so and she's still vomitting.

please take her to the vet ASAP and keep us posted. Vomitting 4 times a week would definetly have me worried...

I agree with OG and meb. Sounds like there could by a hormonal issue tied in there. Definitely not something to wait and see about. :fingerscr

For sure, take her to the vet for blood work. Results come back within hours. My boxer was diagnosed with a hypothyroidism.
