Maltipoo losing hair on feet & legs
Our 14 week old Maltipoo is losing her fluff on her feet and legs. Her tail is also less fluffy.
Otherwise she is very healthy and active. What could the problem be? Does she need vitamins?
If your pup is eating a high quality puppy food it's unlikely that her diet is deficient, or that she needs any supplements.
Puppies do have a pretty major shed as they grow out of that 'baby puppy' stage, and this may be the early stages of something like that.
As long as she's not itching and you don't see any rashes or bare patches, chances are this is nothing to worry about. However, if it becomes excessive or you do notice bald spots or rashes developing then take her to your vet for an evaluation. There are some conditions that can cause hair loss and your vet would be able to make a diagnosis.
Best of luck with your pup.
