Toy Poodle’s Hair Falling Out

Steroids can sometimes prevent hair loss.

Ultimately, to find out what is going on you should arrange to have a skin biopsy taken of the abnormal area and submitted to a pathologist. My guess is that it will be some kind of immune system over-reaction, in which case the steroids might make sense.

Of course, if Sophie is not uncomfortable, you can probably do nothing. (She might appreciate it.)

I doubt Sophie has a life-threatening condition, but I would recommend having a biopsy done to get some answers.

Best,
