I have a 2 year old white male standard purchased as show quality his coat was incredible—- dense and springy. He really felt like a sheep. I had him groomed every 3 weeks by highly recommended groomer. In October I noticed his armpits were bare of hair. Then I noticed thinning behind his ears and on topknot his skin on belly and head were bright pink. Two vets an anti fungal shampoo cytopoint injection and full blood panel work up that showed nothing later his hair has turned pink at the root. My beautiful boy’s coat has changed drastically. There is not dandruff nor scaling nor bumps nor pustules on his skin he is not itchy. My new groomer who once did my other poodle for 10 years is flabbergasted oh I changed his food too altho vet indicated no food allergy. Can anyone offer ideas or suggestions. Expensive dog dermatologist is next and I do not want a skin “punch” done on him

Could it be sebaceous adenitis? As far as I know it can only really be diagnosed with a skin biopsy though.
