My yellow Labrador Retrievers Hair Loss

Subject:My yellow Labrador Retrievers hair loss.

From: Todd (USA)

Labrador Retriever Name: Willis

Reader's E-mail - Todd Writes:

I have been reading the article in reference to Cosmo losing hair, I too have a yellow lab that is the color of Cosmo (you can see the articles Todd refers to below) and the same age with the same problem. The hair loss started recently as well for no reason. My dog is a male, neutered and is experiencing the same issue. I took him to the vet and was diagnosed with Mange.

He has been treated for almost a month now and seemed to move forward off that diagnosis and treatment, however I am starting to notice hair loss in other places now. I will be contacting the vet again today. I will let you know what I hear.

Hello Todd,

Thank you for visiting All About Labradors and for writing. Do you know which form of manage was diagnosed: localized, generalized, or demodectic pododermatitis? What was he treated with?

Please let us know what results come from your next visit as it will be helpful for other readers. Also, what is your Labrador Retrievers name?

Talk to you soon,

Sorry it took so long to get you the information. Willis was diagnosed as having sarcoptic mange, and was treated using the drug ivermectin. Willis is still losing hair but it is also growing back. It has been a long process and I hope it is done. We shall see. I will let you know if I find anything else out.

Thank, you

Thanks for the information Todd, its appreciated and will be helpful to other users.
