My puppy is Sharpei/ Shepard mix. I've adopted her 4 months ago and lately I've noticed that her hair/fur is thinning at the bottom of one of her eye. Could that be due to bacterial infection? She's losing hair and it's spreading. Please educate me of this condition. I'm hoping to get your expertise! =) Thank you!!!

This could be a number of things including mange. I would definatley get her to the vet for a skin scraping and diagnosis before it spreads any further.

Welcome to the forum. I answered your question in the other forum where it is posted and I agree. It is likely demodectic mange and you need to take her to the vet before it gets worse.

Good luck and we'd love to see pics of your girl. :pawprint:
