Hair Loss on ears - advice needed

Post by Briarhoppers » Mon Mar 12, 2018 6:04 pm

I have a 4 year old male beagle that has suddenly loss all the hair on both his ears. He is also starting to loose hair on his muzzle.

I’ve not seen anything like this before. The rest of the hair on his looks just fine and normal. No bald spots that would indicate ring worm or mange.

Just literally no hair on his ears.

Does anyone have experience with this condition? If so any advice would be appreciated. Thx!

Additionally, he is other wise a very healthy dog. Has good weight and body condition, good appetite, energy level in the field etc.

Thyroid issue perhaps? I have a female on thyroid meds and when we were working out her dosage, lost hair on her ears and esp on the bridge of her nose.
