Default Thinning hair on toy puppy

Hi there. I noticed the hair on the front legs of my 3 month old toy is really thin. It happened really fast a month ago she had thick full puppy hair and all of the sudden it seems thin. Is this normal or should I be concerned? She has a vet appointment coming up soon but im looking for some input. She eats only grain free blue buffalo food and i thought maybe it was the shampoo I've been using. I was using chi for dogs because we have it at my work and it smells good but i switched over to Chris Christensen.

That doesn't seem normal to me. I think the vet is your best bet for this. Is she on a puppy food? I would use a good oatmeal shampoo...something very mild and gentle. Make sure you're rinsing ridiculously thoroughly. That's all I can think of other than something to do with vaccines. No sign of thinning anywhere else? Any scratching? Well...maybe the vet will have some answers for you. Let us know. I'll be thinking of you and hoping you get some good answers. She's adorbs btw.

I didn't think about vaccines she did just recently get her second round of vaccinations and started on a monthly heartworm preventative. I wonder if maybe it's a reaction to that.

I don't know. It seems odd that it's only on her legs. Hope the vet can figure it out. I hope everything will be okay. Do keep us posted. Lots of good wishes coming your way.

I know I've been watching to see if maybe shes pulling it out or something but shes not really itchy or anything. I have really tall grass in my yard that she likes to run around in and it grows past her legs maybe it's irritating the skin I really don't know. I just hope it grows back.

Did you ever find out what was wrong that caused your dog's hair to thin in this manner? Our puppy is having this same thing and the vet was stumped.

Hello. Did you ever find out the reason/diagnosis for causing your dog's hair to thin in this manner? Our 3 month old puppy is having the same issue and the vet was stumped today at his appointment.

This member doesn’t seem to be around anymore and only had posted a few messages more than 2 years ago.

Have you asked your breeder ?

I did ask the breeder. She also asked the breeder of the sire. Neither one have seen this issue before. I took our puppy to the vet today for his vaccinations, and she is also stumped. She will do some research, but she did say there looked to be a start of a yeast infection in his ears and treated him with ointment.
