Hair Loss & Bald Patches w/ No Redness or Scabs
On August 13th I posted a photo of one bald patch. After using ACV and coconut oil topically, and feeding raw honey, organic Greek yogurt, ACV and coconut oil for approx. 10 days the hair was growing back in.
The photo enclosed in this post was just taken today. Seven days ago she had another break out, but this time more hair loss/more balding spots. There is no redness. They come in a little lumpy and the hair falls out. She has been licking her paws a lot but she has no irritation on her paws or anywhere else on her body. Started back with the above regimen five days ago, it is looking better, and the hair loss has subsided.
Initially, after the first break out I thought she may have put her head into a bush that may have had chemicals on it. She is fed raw food and is 2.5 years old - we haven't had any allergy issues but she has been sneezing on and off these last five days and have given her Benedryl the last three days. Eliminated some new grain free chicken treats as I figured out she gets a little rash in her armpits from them.
Thanks in advance for our time! Hopefully this will help someone else too.
If your animal is losing fur, the most common cause I have seen is one of two things:
1. Diet - make sure your pet is on a good brand of pet food or a raw food diet. A "Good" brand includes something that has NO corn, wheat, soy, or animal by-products. To go a step further without going raw, try a good grain-free diet.
2. Thyroid problems - have a blood panel done to see if your pet's thyroid is functioning properly. I have seen many bald dogs that are all suffering from an under-active Thyroid. After determining if this is the problem, refer to remedies for Thyroid.

i have a 10 year old cat who is suffering hair loss along her spine- so far I've tried calendula homeopathic cream, stop sting ointment, and vitamin d3---none of these have alleviated the problem- I will put fresh aloe on her today--- the other day I found 2 fleas- it may be an allergy- she is overgrooming- I rub her down with dilute chamomile tea once a week before grooming her and she seems to like that- I saw the suggestions of apple cider vinegar, aloe etc and wondering about dosages for a cat who is under 30 lbs. -- also - she will not eat raw food any longer- and only wants hard food or tuna-- she only ate raw from when she was a kitten- and always was extremely healthy- my son vaccinated her when he got her but she's never had one since---any advice you can give me would be great---- I am considering not offering her anything but raw and see if she will eat it again- again- any suggestions welcome- thank you
I have a Brittany Spaniel dog who is two and a half years old. For a year he has been getting the same allergy i.e. loses his fur around the corner of his eyes and itches. The vet has prescribed steroids several time. The allergy goes but comes back 3 weeks after the treatment is stopped. I hate giving all these pills to my dog. Currently I am giving my dog Science Plan food.
I'm desperate to find a remedy which is natural and healthy without involving any medicine and pills and whatsoever.

I have a cat that is pulling her hair out. My vet says it's because she's an older cat and does this instead of cleaning herself. I find it hard to believe as she runs around the house like a kitten. Does anyone have an idea what could be causeing this? Thank you for reading.

My four year old yorkie lost all his hair in the back and legs, only has hair on his head and ears. Have seen two specialist vets: dermatologist, and internist and three other regular vets. Prescribed expensive shampoos, including one with lyme. My dog is so skinny its only the bones covered with a very dry black skin with scabs. Diagnosis ringworm ( never had ringworm symptoms ; ie reddish skin round scab - no never, his skin just got black, lost some of his nails, but all these vets insist it is ringworm. Have been given antibiotics also. Very expensive powder for immune system. I have sprayed him with the apple cider vinegar, used aloe plants and coconut oil and one of my creams of ketoconazole. I am desperate, because he also doesn't like to eat. I would like to try the betadine, lamisil and tea tree oil. Where else can I go? I have spent lots of money in five vets, and my dog is worse. please help if you know a similar case.
