I have a Old English Sheepdog with what you’ve described as Alopecia He’s 6 and just lost the hair the way you describe it.
I’m devastated as he’s my favorite and I was planning on breeding him.
Thank you for your work. Just in the event, I want to mention that a couple of other a great deal more serious conditions can lead to severe hair loss, you probably know this. Lots of information can be found by going online. Please do immediately, I’d say if you haven’t had him diagnosed by a veterinarian. It always wonderful to know that people are getting needed information from what we write.
Thanks to everyone for your comments.
Merilee, I’m sorry to hear that you’ve gone through this with your OES.
It’s great when people who are experts in a condition chime in with further information. Also, lots of these dogs go unrecognized as having a coat abnormality.a lot of studies are done. Notice, while hair loss, it still looks OK -at a very young age. Doesn’t usually start until age 2, Miller says that dogs with the disease have an abnormal coat -a little woollier. As to how long the hair loss will continue, there’s probably no uniform abnormality in every and each dog how much trunk hair the dog will retain or if the hair will grow back on its own.
Veterinarians and dermatologists don’t start seeing the dogs until they start to lose hair, either at about age 2 or 4 or There’s a very slow progression in coat abnormality, he says.
Virtually all dogs retain their head and leg hair, she says, the coat on the trunk is affected differently in different dogs.
Is seen in a few other plushcoated breeds, like Alaskan Malamutes and Siberian Huskies, alopecia X mainly affects Pomeranians. Keeshonden and Samoyeds. Furthermore, in line with Alane Levinsohn, it starts as unexplained. Moves to the neck area, to various parts of the trunk, health committee chair of the American Pomeranian Club and a ’12 year’ Pom breeder in Southern California.
I agree wholehearedly that we need financial contributions for research as well as blood samples of affected dogs.
Dogs that will be relevant to a study but have passed away should still have their DNA on file for use in research.
Blood samples of dogs may be kept on file with a health history that can be updated as needed, with the Repository. As more samples are donated a cumulative family tree going to be created making the DNA more relevant, not only that. Then the blood samples can be sent to the AKC CHIC DNA Repository where they gonna be stored until a researcher requests the DNA. Even if they don’t lose coat, with that said. Leads to more dogs with the condition and, they are possibly spreading the disease to their progeny, whether male or female. Eventually, any treatment of breeding stock that regrows the coat can create another problem. In consonance with Levinsohn, the rumor in the Pom world, is that quite a few individuals will treat an affected dog hereafter use it fro breeding. There is some more info about this stuff on this website. No test can diagnose alopecia It is diagnosed through clinical signs, thyroid tests and elimination of other possible causes for the hair loss.
If your dog has similar symptoms, your veterinarian hasn’t been able to diagnose it, I actually suggest that you consider consulting a veterinary dermatologist.
It actually confirmed my suspicions.
Conforming to a recent survey the APC did with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals, alopecia X strikes about 16 Pomeranians percent, Levinsohn says. It did not surprise me because of the frequency I was seeing it. Keep up the great work, To be honest I know I enjoy it and I am sure others do as well. We must act now. A well-known fact that is. You are doing a nice work with your research and getting very important info out there. Donating to the Genome project and completing it will lead us to a test. I previously managed a veterinary dermatology practice and it’s this particular interesting specialty. As a result, I am loving your derm related articles! With that said, if we can hold off using them at stud until 5 age years, we can eliminate using affected dogs for breeding, she says. Levinsohn removes any affected dog from her breeding program, as for her own kennel.
Whenever proving that it has alopecia X, most possibly it will do so by hereafter, she now holds off on breeding any male dog until age If the dog is intending to lose its coat.
It’s an excellent article on the subject.
The main thing missing are a few pictures to show what this condition looks like. It’s heartbreaking and frustrating with the frequency at which it turns up in the majority of better bloodlines. It can be difficult to spot in its early stages which only adds to the serious problem, as it can take so long to be sure your dog actually has a big poser and was not just shedding.
With early signs of coat breakage on the rear and tail, we see many in the show ring that look suspicious, still being put up regularly.
I myself have had to retire and neuter promising young specials caliber dogs since this problem.
a lot of dogs who are campaigned as specials ultimately succumb to it. Research has also shown that amphetamines have performance enhancing effects like cognitive behavior improvement, alertness, increase in concentration and memory as well as athletic performance enhancements including muscle strength, acceleration, endurance, decreased fatigue and reaction time in healthy athletes. Actually, an amphetamine is a central nervous system stimulant used to treat disorders similar to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, sleep disorders like narcolepsy and obesity.
Lots of healthy individuals including athletes and young people can overdose or develop amphetamine addiction and abuse, because of its benefits in increasing the brain’s neurotransmitter activity and function. Amphetamines are usually ‘welltolerated’ in the human body with some consequences. Cease taking the medication altogether and wait for your hair to grow back naturally, So in case hair loss is severe. Hair thinning and loss can happen because of drug addiction or from nutritional deficiencies caused by appetite suppression. Thus, adhering to your prescription and dosage recommendations may prevent hair loss or may limit the quantity of hair loss you experience.
It’s common knowledge to anyone studying the causes of hair loss, that nutritional deficiencies is the biggest culprits.
Studies have suggested that Curcumin has antiinflammatory benefits for people with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis let’s say.
Look for herbal ingredients similar to Ashwagandha, a Indian herb and Curcumin, an ingredient in Turmeric, a Indian spice that is believed to have antiinflammatory effects. I know it’s reported to help plenty of dogs, he says. In because of its safety and low cost.
The majority of proposed mechanisms are depending on generalization of work done in other species. Manon Paradis, Sc, a professor of veterinary medicate at the University of Montreal in ‘StHyacinthe’, Québec, Canada, says that it has apparently been successful in approximately 33 cases percent. Any effect is lost down the line though, he says. Very often it will have a positive effect for a short term. Most of the medications are expensive and have a series of aftereffects associated with them, Miller says. Males can be neutered. Other treatments are available, similar to various drugs that affect the adrenal glands. There is more information about it here. I am donating $ 100 from any puppy sold to research into this problem. Seriously. I wish I could donate more but this breed is terribly expensive to raise and for awhile the way -it’s pretty nice thing they are gorgeous! I think a genetic marker is our biggest hope for the future. Therefore, pS myself and a couple of others in my local area have contributed blood samples and pedigrees on both affected and old, unaffected Poms to Dr. Leeb’s study in Switzerland.
I encourage anyone with an alopecia X dog to look into this as it was not that difficult to do.
It came as a package, she says. Something that we inadvertently bred for had that gene close by.
Levinsohn is sure that alopecia X predates for ages being that it also shows up in other ‘doublecoated’ northern breeds. There’s a dog that’s suspicious.’ you can also look at pedigrees and scratch your head. It’s so pervasive that you can look at pedigrees and say, ‘There’s a dog that’s affected. That’s interesting. Shortly after she got into the breed, Levinsohn says she naively thought she could research pedigrees to keep it out of her lines. Which is why I believe it’s a recessive gene.
Professor at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville, researches treatments, while Leeb searches for the genetic component -he’s currently working on a complete genome of an affected Pomeranian to get a comprehensive list of all DNA variants for any longer being that at certain concentrations it can be an irritant, while people use tea tree oil. So, she only washes him when he gets dirty, as to her dog that’s coatless. She has an affected Pomeranian that wears a sweater in the winter and a T shirt in the summer.
I reckon, it doesn’t matter what shampoo you use, she says.
He gets put in rotation for bathing just like everybody else.
I am sure that the hairless skin stays clean and doesn’t get greasy, she says. However, it will lose the coat again. It’s a well shampooing also seems to affect ‘re growth’, Levinsohn says. It may recoat spontaneously, she says, if you treat the dog. Despite some are susceptible to secondary infections, dogs with alopecia X should have healthy skin despite their lack of coat. Also, while something else is going on, Miller says, Therefore if an affected dog has itchy skin, rashes or lesions. Oftentimes thank you!
