I know some iggies have problems with loosing hair, I do! I found a solution online but I don't know if it works yet. I'm trying it right now. What it is, is to take some lemon juice and water and mix it together and rub it on the places your loosing hair and tada! I'm trying it I'll let you know if it works later! Hope it works for you! smile

At our most recent visit to the vet, he noticed some hair loss on Bullet. The vet told us to use lotion/baby oil on the dry spots and vitamin E pills. Seems to be working. Also, in this post-recall world, we're eating dry food now, GROSS!, but it seems to be helping our coats. The dry food is mostly salmon, so it has a lot of good oils to it. Hope this helps.

Some IG's have a genetic hair loss, alopecia. More common in the blue or blue fawn dogs. My understanding is that is it not 'curable' because it is genetic.
Another cause could be a thyroid imbalance.

No I have not. But we figured it out, I was allerigic to my old food. I think she was allergic to chicken or turkey. So now that we stoped eating all chicken and turkey her hair is growing back! YAH!!! dancing Thanks for all your help! Keelie {paw} smile
