    Hair loss on dog's nose?

    I've asked around a couple of places about what could possibly be causing this. My dog has had mild hair loss on his nose for the past couple of weeks. I didn't think much of it at first, but it's gradually grown in size. It's not bad, and it doesn't seem to bother my Golden Retriever/lab mix. I'm taking him to the vet Monday, but can anyone give me any hints as to what this might be?

    Anyone have any idea?

    Do you use a plastic food or water bowl?

    My border collie had this last year. It spread almost up to his eyes. It was kind of a hair loss and his nose looked "chapped." I wasn't sure if it was some kind of parasite or what was going on however after several tests by the vet, it was determined that he had a Vitamin B deficiancy. We put him on some supplements, and it cleared right up in about 2 weeks.

    I also switched food from Pro-plan to Wellness Core, and the problem has not come back.
