This is my boxer. Any idea what is causing this bald spot? I've never noticed her scratching it.

    I would take her to the vet as it could be one of many things, such as internal parasites.

  • Definitely take her to the vet. My guess would be an allergy, maybe to her food, but you never know.

    We see a 2 year old boxer that has a form of alopecia. His owner keeps him on melatonin and he doesn't lose his hair. Definitely take him to the vet for a diagnosis and treatment soon.

  • I've seen this on boxers before, take him to the vet for a diganosis. 

    my guess would be seasonal allergies...thats what it was in the boxers I've seen bofore...seasonal allergies causing hot-spots. I think my friend put vitamin E on the hot-spots (with guidance from their vet).  our pup has itchy-skin alergies, she gets Omega 3,6,9 oils added to her food, and a low dose of prednisone every-other-day. it helps. 

    Good Luck!
