    Hello, I have a beautiful 4 month old blue staffy x bully. She began getting tiny bumps and bald spots when she was 3 months. I took her to the vets and they tested for ringworm (results were negative) and gave me some anti fungal shampoo. This doesn’t seem to be working as the bald spots are getting more and more. She isn’t itchy, and seems fine in herself I’m just concerned as she’s so young. She’s on mostly raw diet of veg and proteins, with some dry benevo puppy food. Just wondering if anyone else has had anything similar and what they did as the vets doesn’t seem to have a clue.

    Could be worth talking with your vet about 'dilution alopecia' - a genetic fault in blue dogs that causes hair loss.
