allright, she's an Australian shepherd, and is an outdoor dog, and she's 14

I did take her hiking about 3 weeks ago and went into the water

hopefully you can see, its a bit hairless, and theres minimal dark sports, kinda as if they were like black ingrown hairs or something



sorry for the oversized picture lol

what do you guys think?

Oh wow, I can't say I have any experience in hair lost. Perhaps a chunk got ripped out by accident? The dark spots could be dried blood from the skin breaking. Does this happen often?

I've see that happen to a spot where a mat has been shaved out, or where a hot spot it forming/healing.

no, this has never happened before

and she hasnt been scratching that area (neck area)

ill keep an eye on it, and will show my mom, maybe we'll take her to the vet just to be safe

a few months ago she had old dog vestibular syndrome, which in total cost us like $1,000!!! so im hoping this isnt serious!! haha
