I adopted my dog last month and just last week I noticed a tiny little patch of hair missing. It is about as round a pencil eraser. Then a week later I noticed the same thing on his side. I tend to run to the vet over everything little thing and hope this is something not to worry about.

Pictures would be helpful. It could be anything. Where was the first spot located? Is it possible the dog is cutting itself on something?

My dog had the SAME thing. She got scrapped 3 times and nothing was coming up as mange mites. I had her treated with ivermectin 2-3 times (just in case. A lot of times the mange mites dont show up in scrapping because the burrow themselves deep in the skin). I also started giving her Taste of the Wild (Salmon for the added omegas for skin and fur), a powder supplement called The Missing Link (Skin and fur, with more omegas). Omega 3 pills (2000 mg a day), apple cider vinegar (an immune system booster. Mites prey on weak immune systems, 2 tsp a day) and coconut oil (2 tsp a day. This is also great for skin/ fur and an immune system booster). I swear to you she is healed and I get tons of compliments on her fur being so healthy and shiny. I always prefer the natural way and the vets were about to have me on a long path of "maybe its allergies", change to this food, take this out and that out and then slowly put it back in, come back for blood tests, etc.

One of our bullies had a small round spot on his butt where all the hair had fallen out. We took him to the vet and we were all stumped until I saw him sleeping in his crate one time. His butt was pushed up to a spot in the crate and it was rubbing the hair off there. We bought him a size larger crate and his hair grew back.
