Cocker losing fur on back

By cocker is 13 1/2 years old. She is starting to lose hair on her back when I comb her. I can comb and comb and end up with a handful of fur. I can do it the next day and same thing happens. Not happening on her legs or anyplace else.

May be one of many things, could be something as mild as an allergy to something as serious a thyroid problem.

Your dog should see a vet for blood work to rule out anything serious or diagnose for proper treatment.

About a month ago she ate a lot of chocolate. Survivived that. She did the same thing about 2-3 years ago. Also in the past she's eaten 90 Celebrix pills.
