Hello Dr Salkin. Thank you for the information. Millie's skin is darker, almost grey, where the hair is thinning. Is this what you mean by hyperpigmented? I've been giving her cod liver oil for about 2 or 3 months, could this be connected? Should I continue to give it to her? In December, after a weekend at the boarding kennels where "playtime" association with the other dogs is usual, she came home with a small bald patch on the right flank which we guessed had been caused in a minor fracas or fight. This patch is still completely bald. The thinning has happened since then. Is this connected? Thank you.
Hello again Dr Salkin. Thank you again. So we should do nothing beyond watch - and wait for the hair to regrow? No need to take her to our Vets Surgery? Regards Vivien
