Chihuahua Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 12/29/2005
My female longhair is losing her hair all over her body. I have taken her to the vet and was told this is a blue trait. Is this true and is there anything that can be done about it? I don't know anything about the parents, we were not allowed to go to the kennels. The breeder said we may bring in any kind of infection. Please help.

1/1/06 Hair loss is not uncommon in blues. It's called alopecia. To my knowledge there is nothing that can be done. She can live a perfectly normal life ... naked. Do you know if either or both of the parents are blue? Connie

2/19/06 I am a breeder and have had the same problem with my Blues, Whites, and Chocolate. Another Breeder told me about MAXIMUM PERFORMANCE INC for dogs. I have been using the product which is a vitamin supplement, and have had wonderful results. It might be worth a try for you as well. Belinda
7/11/06 Use fish oil pills not for an extended time since it will have less effect but till hair starts to grow back It may be due to her coming into heat and it common in blue chihuahua's. Lis
