Lulu is suffering hair loss over her shoulders, her skin underneath is fine, no wounds, scabs or flakiness, she's not scratching.

She's eating and drinking fine, I can't see anything wrong with her apart from her bald shoulders, her weight has always been on the low side.

She's booked in at the vets tonight but thought I'd just see if anyone else has any ideas, If her hairloss had been on her sides I'd of immediately thought ovarian cysts, but her coat's fine every where else.

Her age is unknown, but I would put her at 3-4yrs possibly.

hmm that can be a typical symptom of ovarian cysts and they tend not to scratch and their skin is clear.

Good luck at the vets xx
