My eight month old Pitbull looks to be losing weight and when I pet him he seems to be losing a good bit of hair. He has had all his shots... is this something I should be worried about?

It could be something to worry about. If he's eating as much as he always did, and not getting more exerise but still losing weight, you should take him to the vet for a checkup.

Abnormal hair loss and weight loss can sometimes indicate a thyroid problem.

Stress, Thyroid, Allergy other illness

Dandruff as well?

Change of food or environment? Had the dog very long?
