• I have a 9 week old puppy and his ears seem to be losing hair slowly and I’m not sure if it’s something I’m Doing or maybe he has allergies . Now he has bald spots on his ears . What should I do ?

    Hi Mia,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. Losing hair in a puppy is concerning. There can be a few different causes for this including skin mites, infection, fleas, or an underlying medical issue. Allergies are not usually seen in young puppies, they usually start at about 1 year of age or later. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the hair loss and the treatment that your pet needs after they have examined him.
