most common reason why animals lose fur on the tail so i would recommend they see a veterinarian. we see that in cats also. cats are interesting in that when they are grooming from fleas they will be like from the shoulder blades backwards and sometimes the fur will change color because of the saliva. dogs itch over the butt and tail. so think about that you don't always -- i can't say this too many times. you don't always see fleas when it is a flea problem so don't think because you don't see fleas it's not fleas. >> you would notice a certain amount of itching? >> yes with flea allergies. we think about mites. we can done skin scraping fungal cultures. there's a lot of things we can do. >> all that fun stuff. yeah. dr. jill chase thank you for that. thank you for bringing your friends in today. just email email@example.com, and we'll have our pet expert give you an answer every friday right here at noon. ,,
