why is my 10 year old golden retriever losing hair all of a sudden?

My dog is 10 years old, stays inside except to go potty outside. She went blind last summer and weighs 83 lbs. She eats ok, but concerned why she is losing so much hair.

Some retrievers lose hair in the spring & fall because of allergies. I have seen huge bald spots on the belly area. It should grow back as you head into winter, but if it is dry, itchy, or red I highly recommend using PETfection Deodorizer/Allergy Spray. It is 100% Organic, Non Toxic, and is amazing at helping with itchy spots/dry skin/bumps/etc. I use it for everything! Check it out at for more info. Hope this helps!
